Wilderness Practices for Season of Lent
The season of Lent is often described as a wilderness season. Traditionally it has been an opportunity for the people of God to journey deeper into discipleship.
This Lenten season we're listening and reflecting on stories from Luke’s gospel and what each story teaches us about Christ’s call to discipleship.
These calls to discipleship hold a two-fold invitation to the table God prepares for us - to feast and to serve. Each week in this series we will consider both the feast freely offered to us and a practice which helps us accept/receive that gift and offer it to others.
We'll be including these guided practices as bonus episodes on our podcast.
We'll also be adding some tools & resources each week to help you 'keep practicing.' You'll find these added below.
