In Worship: We begin our new Lenten worship series, The Way. Lent is a time of reflection, of soul-searching, and taking stock of our lives. Lent invites us to take a journey of the heart, as a way of gaining perspective and insight. In the weeks ahead, we will make our way together, seeking to live the life we’ve been given to the fullest. This week: The Wandering Way.
