Recovery & Spirituality – A Lenten Study

Lenten Study – Wednesdays, 6:15-7:00 pm – 2/26 – 4/1

Jason Fisher will lead a study focusing on spiritual practices for resurrection during the season of Lent. According to Jason, “Lent is a time of humility and sacrifice, not for the sake of giving something up just to make life hard, but so that we can see how easily we depend on the things that God provides and how quickly we take them for granted. It is a season of greater dependence on God and gratitude for what God provides. This season gives us a chance to dwell with the brokenness of our humanity and in that our theme for the Lenten Studies will focus on Recovery & Spirituality.”

During the Lenten Study, members “will watch videos about people going through 12 step recovery programs while practicing various Christian spiritual practices and how these practices have helped in their healing and wholeness. It is [Jason’s] hope that people will discover they are not alone in their brokenness, and that through trying at least one of the Christian practices regularly God might guide them to greater peace, honesty, and healing.” Jason has also created a daily devotional booklet for Lent with 40 days of prayers and meditation. You can pick up the booklet in the church office or narthex, or email Jason and he’ll send you a copy.

Jason is Director of Youth & Family Ministry at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and serves as Deacon, calling to Word & Service Ministry. He focuses on teaching and connecting people to opportunities to lead the community in Jesus’ name.

Join Us for Worship

9am Sunday Mornings

All are welcome!
Nursery available for families with small children

At Good Shepherd we practice open communion. We believe in the real presence of Jesus Christ in the elements of bread and wine. In the gospels we meet Jesus, God’s Son, who ate with sinners and welcomed all. You are welcome at this, the Lord’s Table. Children who commune in their home congregations are welcome to commune at this church. Children who do not receive communion are encouraged to come forward with hands folded to receive a blessing. Children normally receive their first communion after conversation between parents, children and Pastor.
