Lent–Easter 2016 Worship Series
With thematic inspiration drawn from the Gospel of St. Luke, Places of the Passion Lent–Easter 2016 worship series focuses not on the physical locations of our Lord’s Passion but on the spiritual wonders of His work.
We are familiar with the scenes of Lent. The Upper Room, the Garden of Gethsemane, the halls of Pontius Pilate, and the hills of Golgotha. These are the places that come to mind when we meditate on our Lord’s Passion.
But this Lent and Easter season, pause to encounter different kinds of places—the places throughout life where Jesus demonstrates His strength in the midst of our weakness and His timeless love in the midst of our temporal darkness. Jesus never leaves a place as He found it. The most troubling places of our lives become amazing places of God’s grace when Jesus visits them.
Preaching and Teaching Resources
During the reflective time of Lent, pastors are really busy. This collection of preaching and teaching resources gives pastors peace of mind and guidance as they share all the riches of Lent with God’s people.
