Jesus disrupts the status quo on his journey toward the cross.

The season of Lent is a time of prayer, discipline, and self-examination in preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord at Easter.

Take a minute, right now, to breathe and be with God.

Lenten Disciplines

If you feel stirred to dive deeper into this season, consider one of these Lenten disciplines:

Read the Bible every day

It’s not too late to join our Year in the Bible initiative. Over 500 members are reading the same chapters together every day and being supported by daily email devotions and morning prayer services. Find the reading plan at the link below and join in for Lent!

Daily Devotions

As a Lenten practice during this season, clergy and leaders in the church from youth to elders will be sharing their devotions.

Sermon Reflection Questions

Week 2 – February 28, 2021

Luke 6:1-11

On this second Sunday of Lent, we encounter Jesus in confrontation with the Pharisees. Jesus and his disciples are “doing what is unlawful” on the Sabbath, picking grain and healing. As you read this text consider the themes of food insecurity and health care, and how they relate to Jesus’ practice of getting into Good Trouble.

  • How do you feel about Jesus and his disciples breaking the law on the Sabbath to relieve hunger and provide healing?

  • Are some laws okay to be broken for the sake of the health and well-being of others? What circumstances call for these actions? What would you personally do in a crisis of hunger?

  • Jesus was highlighting that some of the Sabbath laws were not “life-giving” but instead prohibited individuals from fully experiencing life. What laws in our local, state, and national system might need to be changed to better provide for a fullness of life for all?
