Lent is a 40 day season (not including Sundays) that provides space for self-examination, reflection, and spiritual preparation. It is an invitation for deep inner work, as well as communal conversation and repentance. May the following opportunities for worship, prayer, and study with FCC help create a meaningful experience for you this Lent.
A Journey Through Lent is an interactive daily Lenten Devotional which will invite you to learn, engage, and reflect through scripture, music, and prayer to help us see God in the mundane (emotions, thoughts, and desires) AND in the extraordinary things of life (creation, humanity, and faith). Explore the ordinary and extraordinary manifestations of God! This Lenten devotional will offer you an opportunity to read, listen, reflect, AND respond. At the end of our Journey Through Lent we will have EXPERIENCED God together; listening, reflecting, and seeking ways to connect with God that will challenge us and increase our faith.
SPECIAL LENTEN OFFERING: Repentance & Repair
Sundays February 25 - March 10 following Worship in the Family Room
Based on Reparations: A Christian Call for Repentance and Repair by Duke L. Kwon and Gregory Thompson ©2021
You might be asking “Why are we bringing up ‘reparations’ in church?” or “Why do we still need to talk about race?” This award-winning book, written by two pastors, addresses these questions through a compelling exploration of American Christian history and scripture that calls us to explore the work of repentance and repair. We hope our discussions help us move past politically charged words to embrace more deeply our calling as agents of repair and restoration wherever harm has been suffered or wrongs have been done.
Reading guides are available, whether you have a little or a lot of time to read, so that you can join us for discussion. Hard copies are available at the check-in desk in the Gathering Space, or contact Kathi Leahy for a digital copy at email@example.com. 10 Copies of the book are available at the Flossmoor Library for anyone with a library card.
