We are in the season of Lent and the past few days have been a mix of emotions and change. There are many messages we see and hear and some of it may be tremendous. It is sometimes hard to tune out all of the excess. You may be already overwhelmed by all that will take place in the coming days. I would invite you into a new space, or maybe you have already found it.
What story do you have to tell? From your life so far, the lessons you have learned. The traditions or special moments that you spent with family members during the Lent and Easter season. In our culture, lots of people are sharing stories on social media, through television, and other technology. I am going to invite you to share our story, the life of Jesus Christ and its impact on your life and our world.
So how do we help children, youth and adults in our community find themselves within the Lent & Easter story? Find some time where you can look into the eyes of another person and invite them to share some of their story. Then share part of your story and how Jesus Christ has made an impact on it.
I believe we have the best story in the world to share. You may be overwhelmed with resources to us during this time at home or you may be looking for how to continue being the church.
You may already have a Lent devotion or Bible study you are using. If you would like something new that's been created with some resources for families, (pdf file or link https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.cloversites.com/cb/cb0cd516-be94-40af-99bd-f2f2860b752e/documents/Pandemic_Hope_Devotional.pdf?fbclid=IwAR1MsC4cHmVLpwuGeKrdaO0Ls0FuC5DT0MxDy2Vd_eG4nLx05QA1vrMC-Hc)
If you are looking for a Bible study to do individually or as a family we have a free subscription for you through Rightnow Media, you can sign up here. https://www.rightnowmedia.org/account/invite/johnscreekpres
On that site, I will be updating with resources on the home page that myself or other staff members recommend.
