This week, Sean Palmer walks us through our last week of Lent and in our series of “In the Desert.” He guides us through some passages that remind us that God leads us into the desert and into the struggles. And he reminds us that sometimes the reason we are wrestling with God, struggling with circumstances, is because God led us there to bless us.
Pastor Chris Seay teaches from the Gospel of Luke; considering Jesus’ call for us to rid our lives of greed and anxiety and to be ready to respond at all times. He shares heartbreaking stories from the ground along the Venezuelan border, and shares the opportunity that we have to partner with efforts to address vital needs surrounding the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.
Join us as we continue engaging in rhythms of worship, prayer, and contemplation throughout this journey of Lent. As we begin to see Easter on the horizon, we consider the stillness of the desert, and are reminded that God’s love and provision is never dependent on our striving and activity. We are loved, you are loved, just as you are.
Our good brother Gideon Tsang shared this weekend with us from Exodus 3. He walked us through how we can mature and grow in this Lenten season and some practices to pick up to help us listen to our lives and the places in our lives where we need to mature.
Gideon serves the community of Vox Veniae in Austin, TX
Pastor Sean Palmer invites us to continue our Lenten journey through the desert; sharing the story of Hagar and asking us to consider that, wherever we might find ourselves in the wilderness, God sees and is with us at every step.
As we consider life in the desert, the invitation to continue in a season of scarcity and contemplation, join us in this opportunity to pray and reflect together as a community, seeking God’s guidance through this forty day journey of Lent. In the solitude, may we rest in the faith that we are never alone.
This week, Ericka Graham takes us further into the desert during Lent. In the desert, we face demons, temptations, vices and evil. And just as the Tempter left Jesus for another opportune time, we have the chance to face our temptations again and be stronger for it.
Pastor Wayne Brown invites us in this season of Lent to examine and embrace our failure with the confidence that God will restore us. Jesus encouraged Peter by letting him know that he would recover from his failure and become a source of strength for others close to him. How can we use our journey through the desert to bring hope to others?
