ent 2024 - Wandering Heart
Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter. This season is often one of reflection and preparation. As our worship planning team was reflecting on a theme, we felt particularly drawn to Sanctified Art’s series “Wandering Heart.” Here is their description:
This Lent, we are focusing on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples. In Peter, we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. In Peter, we often see ourselves. By following Peter’s journey, we watch the story of Jesus unfold through the eyes of a very normal human trying to figure it all out—just like us.
In this series, we want to affirm that faith is a constant journey of steadfast pursuit, one that ebbs and flows. We want to affirm the ways Peter keeps going: he drops his nets, he walks on water, he runs to the empty tomb, he swims to the shore to meet the risen Christ. He keeps searching and yearning and loving, even after missteps or mistakes. Ultimately, in Peter’s story, we are reminded that God loves imperfect people—in fact, time and again, that’s precisely who God claims and calls.
We will have a Lenten devotional available beginning February 4 that connects with our theme and can accompany us throughout the season. This Lent, as we wander, may we rest in streams of mercy, never ceasing.
