Our series from Lent through Easter will be "Seeking: Honest Questions for Deeper Faith."
Like the characters we will meet in the scriptures during our Lenten season, we are seeking many things: clarity, connection, wonder, justice, and balance. We are seeking our calling, the sacred, and how to live as a disciple. Throughout the turbulence of the past few years, many of us are asking big questions about our lives and our faith. If you are returning to church, you are probably returning with more questions and a critical lens - you and your questions are welcome here. We hope this series will help us unpack some of our big questions in ways that are honest and faithful. Throughout this season, I hope everyone will join me in asking: What am I seeking? What is God seeking?
This Lent, you're invited to intentionally engage in the spiritual practice of seeking - to be curious, open, and nimble - to soften your assumptions and expand your perspectives. My prayer is that the questions we explore together will create a safe space to explore - to be drawn more deeply into the fullness of life and all the more close to God.
Our Lent series begins with Ash Wednesday, February 22 at 6 PM through Easter Sunday, April 9. We will offer a Maundy Thursday service on April 14 at 6 PM and a Good Friday service on April 16 at 6 PM. If you've been thinking about visiting us, we would love to meet you. Those who regularly attend our services are encouraged to bring friends and family.
I'm looking forward to embarking upon the Lenten season together.
