This Lenten Sermon Series: “The Last Paths of Jesus” traces the footsteps of Jesus’ final week of his earthly life. You may wonder why we are focusing on the events of Holy Week during Lent. Holy Week is so sacred, but it passes so quickly that we have little time to let the experience and journey of Jesus sink in and ruminate in our hearts and minds. By slowing the process, and spending the weeks of Lent on the events of Holy Week, we will have adequate time for reflection of the amazing events leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus.
- Week One (March 6): Jesus The King - Mark 11:1-11
- Week Two (March 13): Tables and Heads Were Turned - Mark 11:12-19
- Week Three (March 20): Conflict, and More Conflict - Mark 11:20-13:37

During Lent this year we are going to learn to lament, to cry and complain, with God’s Word. Yes, God teaches us how to cry and complain to him when we’re in trouble, when we need him, or even when God in a sense, seems to be the Trouble Maker. In this time of stress and worry it is easy to become worn out. In this study we will be learning how to “appropriately” belly ache to God! In the third year of this pandemic We need to focus on the Lord, complain to him, and seek his guidance in troubled times. Lamenting is part of a process that draws us closer to God. So, let us gather together and do some belly aching!
