Lenten Worship Series
Holly Vessels – A Lenten Season of Recovery
Beginning February 21st
“He took our infirmities and bore our diseases.” Matthew 8: 17b
Each of us is created a precious and holy vessel of embodied love. We have been through a harrowing time
since last Lent that has shattered our sense of wholeness–body, mind, and spirit–like a glass vessel fractured into pieces.
In this Lenten “season of recovery” for our physical, communal, mental, intellectual, and environmental health,
we will explore the healing narratives of Jesus that tell of divine solidarity with human suffering and remind us
that we can begin a journey toward making something beautiful from that which is seemingly broken.
Beach glass offers us a multifaceted symbol of this transformative process.
