A Lenten Journey
In the season of Lent, our lectionary passages, from the gospels and almost all from the Old Testament are filled with questions. Some are accusatory, some are deeply philosophical or theological, some rhetorical and some are indirect. All seem to point to the underlying drive of most human beings: Why are we here? What does this mean? Does God care? Do we have a purpose?
Lent is a time to go deeper, to use the “tithe” of time to ponder and pray over the hard questions. The questions raised in the lectionary are a way to go deep into who we are, whom do we worship, what are we willing to commit and how are we willing to live out the faith we have in Christ. As United Methodists in downtown Wichita, Lent is an invitation to intentionally ponder where our core values lie and how they and our faith will lead us into an uncertain future. Join us this March for “Complex Questions: A Lenten Journey”.
