This blog consists of a series of daily verses and brief reflections around our Lenten theme. In 2017 our theme is “…Love Justice…Do Kindness…Walk Humbly…” (Micah 6:8) with a special focus on The Lord’s Prayer under the title “The Justice and Peace of the Lord’s Prayer”.
Our weekly foci will be
- “Our Father”
- “Your name be holy”
- “Your will be done”
- “As we forgive”
- “Lead us not into temptation”
On Sundays during Lent our worship will be followed by a soup luncheon and conversation time on themes related to our observance of the Lenten season. The topics for our “Sunday Soup” this year are:
- Listening Well
- Speaking Truly
- Seeing Clearly
- Acting Kindly
- Walking Together
In a time as divided as ours it is important that the Christians seek to be agents of reconciliation and witnesses to the biblical vision of a human community governed by the Spirit of God who “loved us and gave himself up for us“.
