Lent

Lent provides an invitation to examine not only the context of what is happening around us,
but to examine what is happening within us that keeps us from experiencing the fullness of
God’s grace and love. It is a time to draw closer to God, to renew our commitments, and to see the evidence of God’s reign on earth as we expect to see it in heaven.
This year, we are following the theme of Holy Vessels: A Lenten Season of Recovery, and use the image of beach glass as a way to show that what is broken in us is beautiful.

Vessels, holy and whole
Broken, needing the One
Open, body and soul
Healer, come

“Jeremiah”
