As we approach the festival of Easter, we aim to experience something of what Jesus felt on the Cross. In his cry, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” God confesses the absence of God.
During Lent, we will expose ourselves to some of the great atheist critics of religion, in order to purge ourselves of a faith in which doubt is bad and God is used as a crutch to cope with the uncertainties and hardships of life.
In the process, we hope to discover a richer faith in which our experiences of the absence of the presence of God are recognised and remembered.
So forget forsaking chocolate, TV or tiddlywinks… ATHEISM FOR LENT is a decentering practice designed to envelop you in what some mystics call the great “Cloud of Unknowing”. It will expand your mind, enrich your soul and rock your world.
