Ready for Lent continues with “Ready for the Spirit” as we continue to navigate these difficult times. Being ready for the spirit means being ready for things to be different. But it also means recognizing when things are difficult.

Our scripture readings come from Ezekiel 37:1-14; Romans 8:6-11; and John 11:1-45.

“Everything is Pointless” is the first message in the three week series Difficult Readings. This series looks at texts that can be hard to read. First up is Ecclesiastes. A repeated idea is that everything is pointless. Is this really true? Is this the main message? What does Ecclesiastes say about human emotion? About our own understanding? Can we really complain this much to God? Let us grow together as we explore these difficult readings!

Our scripture reading comes from Ecclesiastes 2:14-26.

The latest in The Word in Song is “I Knew You Were Waiting,” inspired by the duet by George Michael and Aretha Franklin. How do we handle feeling alone in times of great difficulty? Do we lose sight of God? Will Christ ever not be there for us? Is God faithfully waiting? Find inspiration anywhere and everywhere, and hear the Word in song!

Our scripture reading comes from Lamentations 3:19-33.

The musical inspiration comes from “I Knew You Were Waiting” by George Michael and Aretha Franklin.
