Our gospel readings in Lent offer us many stories of Jesus encountering people who are seeking: seeking a new beginning, a different life, a deeper faith. What unfolds is an exchange filled with questions and exploration. Often, an unveiling occurs- assumptions are disrupted, a new perspective is revealed, mystery grows. Like these characters, we are also seeking many things: clarity, connection, wonder, justice, balance. We are seeking our honest questions calling, the sacred, and how to live as disciples.

And so, we're focusing this season Seeking, and on the questions we ask while seeking. Throughout this season, we will use worship and prayer, discussion and song, artwork and poetry, to explore our theme. Our questions won't necessarily lead to answers, but they can help us find clarity and a new perspective. Ultimately, we pray they lead to new beginnings, restoration, and a wider grace.

You are invited to join us for any and all of these Lenten activities. You can also sign up to receive daily devotions by email, and follow our page to see daily Facebook posts related to the theme. (And by "You" we mean, anyone reading this - YOU are welcome here)
