During our 40-day pilgrimage of Lent, we will Learn to Rise. Hearing stories throughout the Lenten season where Jesus foretells of his death and resurrection, we have the opportunity to journey in contemplation of death and resurrection in our lives. To what do you need to die so that you might fully live in Christ? What practices, habits, ideas, relationships do you need to set down so that you can rise and follow Jesus more fully?
As a community this past year, we have identified that white supremacy is something that keeps us from fully rising with Christ. Therefore, in our devotions and Wednesday night worship during Lent, we will be focusing on learning about the 14 principles of white supremacy, confessing their hold on our individual and communal lives, and taking on practices that might help us to loosen their hold on us.
