Lenten Worship Series: REHAB

In general, the word rehabilitate means to restore to a condition of good health, ability to work; to restore to good condition or operation; or to restore a person's reputation. Similarly, the annual observance of the Lenten discipline among Christians is a time to seek restoration for our lives. It is a time to reflect, take stock of our spiritual condition, and realign our lives. We become aware of how out of step we are with where we are called to be. We all have work to do. On each Sunday of this journey, the Scriptures provide the core guidance for the work of the week to come in our own lives and with others in midweek formation groups.
   Week 1: February 18 - "Wilderness" - Mark 1:9-15
   Week 2: February 25 - "Intervention" - Mark 8:31-38
   Week 3: March 4 - "Program" - Exodus 20:1-17
   Week 4: March 11 - "Recovery" - John 3:14-18
