Our theme for the season of Lent is to “Listen.” Lent is a time of preparation, and during this 40-day journey, we are invited to “turn around” (the root meaning of the word “repent”) from the distractions of daily noise and focus our attention on listening in a deeper way.
Each Sunday through Palm Sunday, we will be focusing on a different way of listening. Our worship services will incorporate a new discipline or ritual to aid in listening in fresh and meaningful ways. Our services will cover the following topics and Scriptures:
February 18: Finding your Cave: Listening Spaces – I Kings 19:8-13a
February 25: Finding Your Breath: Listening to our Bodies – Romans 8:26-30, 38-39
March 4: Finding a Word: Listening to the Text – Proverbs 1:20-23
March 11: Finding Your Power: Listening for Healing – Mark 9:14-29
March 18 – Finding Your Mystic: Listening beyond the Voices – Romans 12:2-12
March 25 – Palm Sunday – Finding Your Purpose – Listening with your Heart – Matthew 26:36-46
Instead of giving something up for Lent, why don’t you add a time of personal meditation or devotion to your routine for the next 40 days and notice how God is speaking to you anew? And join us as we “Listen” together.
