Lent is a time of reminding ourselves who we are called to be in this world. Our Lenten series is inspired by Amos, a prophet whose message is that God calls us to let “justice roll down like waters.” Often we see the Lenten journey simply as a journey inward, a self-reflective time, an inward self-examination.

While it is important to take this inward journey and to spend some time in solitude and reflection, it isn’t the whole story. Examining your soul is more than just looking inward; it is also considering the state of your soul as it walks about in the world.

How do you live in the world around you? How do you impact, or better, how does your faith impact your community, your church, your family? Our worship series will offer us reflection and renewed inspiration to let our voices be turned to the heart of the Gospel – proclaiming God’s love for all people. What prejudices are we challenged to “give up” as a Lent practice of abstinence, and further, how are we willing to “give” of ourselves for the sake of the world.
