We hope you find rest, healing, and home with us!!!
Series Idea: For this Lenten season we will take time and reflect on different forms and reasons for lament.
FEB 18: “Why Lament?” Scripture Passage: Psalm 13
In Lent, lament invites us to face our humanity. Lament is a natural part of our faithful, loving response to a world marked by sin and brokenness.
FEB 25 “Lament and Honesty” Scripture Passage: Job 13:1-13
Job’s response to his friends ensures us that we can be honest with God in even the most painful situations, trusting God to be God in the process.
MAR 3: “Lament and Surrender” Scripture Passage: Matthew 26:36-46
Focus Statement: Jesus did not always love his options and in the midst of lament, he still freely chose to surrender to God.
MAR 10: “Lament and Community” Scripture Passage: Esther 4:1-5
Focus Statement: When we recognize or experience injustice, crying out together in words and actions can move us closer to God’s vision for humanity and stir us to make change.
MAR 17: “Lament and Hope” Scripture Passage: Lamentations 3:19-24
Focus Statement: In a world of “either/or,” lament can bring us to a more honest place of “both/and.” We can both reckon with the full weight of our sorrows and experience hope in our faithful, loving God.
MAR 24: “Lament and Action” Scripture Passage: Luke 19:41-48
Focus Statement: While facing reality can sometimes cause us great pain and sorrow, Jesus shows us how this important step can lead us to necessary, God-seeking action.
MAR 28: “Lament and Love” Scripture Passage: John 13:1-17
Focus Statement: In both our joys and sorrows, Jesus commands us and shows us how to be a community committed to love in action.
