Worship in the Wilderness – Lent Sermon Series

February 19 @ 8:00 am - March 26 @ 11:00 am

Worship in the Wilderness bannerLent began on Ash Wednesday, and for many the imposition of ashes marked the beginning of the 40 day journey that leads to the cross and Christ’s resurrection. The 40 days observed in Lent intend for us to relate our own spiritual journey with that of Jesus’, who after his baptism was led into the wilderness by the Spirit for 40 days, to fast, pray, and resist temptation.

Part of living as Jesus did must involve our following him into the wilderness. For the season of Lent, we’ll Worship in the Wilderness together.  Our forty-day journey will be a Spirit-filled, sacrificial and surprising journey.

Last Sunday, our Wilderness Worship began with recognizing that worship at the “valley floor” can be just as inspirational and meaningful as it may be at the “mountaintop.”  This Sunday, we will recognize SIMPLICITY, as we experience extended times of silence and are called to disciplines of solitude, humility and restraint.

I pray, as we Worship in the Wilderness together, we will find that place; the place of transformation that the season of Lent is intended for. A place of retrospection and repentance. A place to forgive and be forgiven. A place to simply BE.

Take the Lent Challenge this year.  Make it your commitment to worship EVERY Sunday in Lent. I promise, when we celebrate the great Resurrection of our Lord and Savior on Easter, we all will be transformed with Christ; resurrected from our old selves and ways of being, to rebirth in a new life – the life in which God intends.
