Surprise the World! Lent 2018 Video Study

This Lent (February 14-April 1), the Bishop and Cabinet invite all Minnesota United Methodists to take on some intentional practices of being generous, hospitable, Spirit-led Christ-like missional people that surprise the world. Beginning on February 15th, each week in the MN Connect e-newsletter, we will post a new video introducing these practices, based on Michael Frost’s book Surprise the World: Five Habits of Highly Missional People. We will also include a link to scripture and reflection questions weekly.

We encourage congregations to purchase copies of the book ($4.99 on, and to form small groups to journey together as a DNA (discipleship, nurture, accountability) group during Lent. A small group study guide for each week can be downloaded at

And then tell the stories of what happens as you engage in these five practices by posting on social media with the hashtag #surprisetheworld! Let’s start a movement!

The Risen Christ is Coming

Christ is risen! Christ is risen, indeed! Easter is about Jesus standing among us in every circumstance, in every place, Bishop Bruce R. Ough said in his 2018 Easter message. “Easter is about realizing that our story, our journey, with Jesus is beginning rather than ending.”
