Lenten Worship Theme
This year our Wednesday night worship will center on a sermon series by United Methodist Pastor Brett Blair. The series is entitled “The Passion of The Christ.” It focuses on the final week of Jesus’ life.
History often records that in the lives of great people, their finest hours were their final hours. It was no exception with Jesus. So significant did the Biblical writers consider the last week of Jesus’ life, the week that we call Holy Week, that about 50% of all the material that we have concerning Jesus’ life deals with his final week.
Yet, so often in our worship, we mentally skip over this week. In our worship we go from Palm Sunday one week to Easter Sunday the next week. We go from triumph to triumph. Yet, between Monday and Saturday, so much happened–his entry, anger, teaching, supper, betrayal, trial, scourging, and crucifixion.
