God is on the move! That is our Lenten theme this year. The sermon series for Lent will focus on God moving to the cross and personally in our lives. We will see how Christ moves us past obstacles, moves us through wisdom, moves out to greet us, and moves us inside and out to transform our lives through gracious acts. Aristotle thought of God as the Unmoved Mover. Thomas Aquinas pointed out that there would be no movement in the whole cosmos unless there was a first mover. St. Augustine shared how Jesus was God moving to save us. We believe through the Holy Spirit that God is still on the move! We believe God is on the move in our church. Together we will explore how God is on the move in our lives.
Also, this year during worship in Lent we are planning a special practice called “Visio Divina.” This will be a time to help us focus on God’s provisions and movement in our lives. Photos based on selected Psalms are being taken by two of our church members who have a passion for photography. We will project a photo image on the screen. Then a leader will guide us with a Psalm and mediation to reflect on how God sustains us.
My prayer for our worship during Lent is for us to all see how God is moving in our lives.
