Service Themes for Lent and Easter 2018
This year, our Sunday service themes and messages will focus around the theme, “The time is now.” The guiding verse for the theme comes from the appointed epistle for Ash Wednesday – For he says, “In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 6:2) The apostle, Paul, sees the Isaiah text fulfilled in the coming of God in Christ. How is the text being fulfilled today in our lives? Lent is a time for us individually and as a community of faith to become more aware of how God is revealed among us today and of how we might respond to his help and salvation.
I thought about titling the Lenten series, “Hot Mess, Cool Jesus” to highlight our pathetic condition and God’s unconditional, healing love. But upon reflection I thought it sounded too much like a Dairy Queen ad. But however our time this Lent is titled, the point I will drive home is this – we have great need and God, in his mercy, has listened to us and answered our great need in Christ.
