This Wednesday, February 18, is Ash Wednesday. At 6 pm, Journey3 will hold a special Ash Wednesday service. This is the beginning of Lent, which is a time of reflection and renewal leading up to Easter. Come Wednesday to our location at Rivergate Church for this time of quiet and reflection on the meaning of Lent. We will be offering the sign of ashes on the forehead as a mark of our desire to come close to God.
The Israelites’ liberation from Egypt isn’t just a long-ago Bible story. We each find ourselves enslaved: to work, to destructive relationships, to food, to spending… but beyond our personal Egypt lies God’s promised land. Let’s learn how the wilderness journey can help us face our fears, receive our new identity, experience transformation and live into our newfound freedom.
