Week 4 of a six-week series called Lost and Found. This worship experience takes us to Jerusalem and Jesus' final week of his earthly ministry. We head to the cross with specific expectations and anticipations about what the Cross and Holy Week mean. We head into this week with struggles, pain and grief, searching and seeking hope and joy. We head into the days to come with a sense of relief that all will be well in the end. But Jesus expects that we take the difficult journey with him - a journey of grace, of immeasurable love and forgiveness. A journey that reflects on ourselves and asks us to step into a way of life that is different than what society and culture tells us. A journey in which we too lay down our lives for others in kindness, reconciliation, peace and hope.
In this six-week series, we continue to explore how the promises of God are fulfilled in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. We look at some of the parables of Jesus as well as his death and resurrection. These stories are mixed with immense grief, loss, celebration and joy. We discover that the very character of the Triune God is about restoration and reconciliation of relationships. For what has been lost has been found.
