Hear the cadence of the story God is telling…
First there was love– out of their great love for each other, the Trinity chose to create man and invite him into a beautiful, never ending love story.
Then there was loss– out of our great love for ourselves we lost everything. And since that first great loss, we continue to lose much every day we stay trapped in our self-stained small story.
But then love triumphed– out of His great sacrifice emerged an other-centered love the world had never known and through that love we are ushered back into His epic love story- a story our life can tell through the daily rhythm of grace.
“Self-denial means knowing only Christ, and no longer oneself. Self-denial is saying only: He goes ahead of us; hold fast to him. ”
Lament, our pathway through loss back to love.
Lament is a way that we join His timeless story. Our daily losses drive us back to the source of love. And we experience a love that requires us to lose- something of ourselves, our sin, our self-addicted story. This cycle of lament is how His story gets worked back into us- how we learn to be more like Him. Join us during this season of Lent as we live to His holy rhythm of love, loss and lament.
