“Look, I’ll pour out my spirit on you. I’ll reveal my words to you.” – Wisdom (from Proverbs)
Have you ever misplaced your phone–which is on vibrate of course–and then asked someone to call it? We get really still and really quiet. Our ears perk up in all directions in order to be ready to hear that little buzz. It is a quieting down and high alert all at the same time. This Lent we will quiet things down and heighten our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own True Self. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on holy texts is an ancient Lenten practice. Come and rest, come and listen.
This week on Ash Wednesday Pastor Steve Vineyard introduced his sermon series Listen, with the sermon Finding your Life: Listening Deeply.
On Sunday the series continues with:
Hearing God’s Voice, Finding Your Own
We continue our period of repentance and renewal this Lenten season that started with Ash Wednesday. We have received our ashes and now until Easter, we will relive the resurrection story to better understand its meaning.
We invite you to come and experience the meaning of the resurrection as we make our journey through the Lenten season and witness the joy of Jesus Christ in our worship, our Christian development, and our serving others in our community.
