Lent 2021- One Body. Our Burdens. Our Joys.

But he was wounded for our transgressions,
crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the punishment
that made us whole…

–Isaiah 53: 5

Jesus is God’s ultimate act of empathy by bearing our burdens and joys in his one body. Our Lenten journey will explore this spiritual truth and in doing so increase our own capacity to be empathetic. All of it will lead us to a deeper experience of grace.  

Lent Kits:We have created kits with tools, activities, and items you’ll need to make this season both meaningful and fun. Due to the winter weather, the Lent kits will be mailed as soon as possible. Since there has been a delay, we are emailing a digital version of the Reflection Guide weekly. To complete your kit, you will need to provide your own “Empathy Candle” to light during worship and in some of the weekly activities in the Reflection Guide. Any candle will do.
