THE 2017 LENT PROJECT

TRULY HUMAN
In our world it is easy to find alternative sources of identity. But we are not defined by what we possess, what entertains us, what we wear, or what we consume.

As we continue life together as sojourners walking in the Way of Jesus, we are invited to consider what it means to be truly human, what the essence of life as a child of God looks like. 

FAITHFUL PRESENCE
We learn to trust that in what can feel like small, minute, unseen, or hyper-local actions or practices, God can be at work in profound and beautiful ways. So we turn our gaze to our own neighborhoods just as we pay attention to the wider world. 

EXCESS & ESSENCE
We seek to decrease our reliance on the excess in our lives and increase our understanding of our own essence as a beloved child of God.

SAYING YES
We remember that the Way of Jesus is not simply about denial or saying no. It’s about saying yes to life with God and this becoming world God is redeeming around us. 

PRACTICE & PRAYER
Each week (Monday - Saturday), we’ll experiment together with a specific practice and each practice will be accompanied by a daily prayer, a recognition that life is found on the path of God's grace.
