Scripture: Psalm 1 | Series: Lent 2016
Lent is a 40 day pilgrimage of the soul in the wilderness of sin and repentance through the shadow of death in lament to the hope of the resurrection culminating in Easter. Coming to terms with our vulnerability involves giving our attention to the wounds of living as a sinner in a broken world. During Lent we intentionally identify with Jesus' death for us through fasting and prayer in order to die to all the false promises of this world to give life. In doing so we experience the unique power of Jesus to make us truly alive in the power of his resurrection. In that process the Pslams - the prayer book of Jesus - will be our guide to teach us what it is to live through dying.
