The last week of Jesus’ live often passes in a holy week blur.
This Lent we will slow the story down to focus on the events of that last week in order to focus on each movement and be challenged to reflect on how the story of Jesus shapes our lives. As we seek to find ourselves in the story of Jesus we will consider

Putting the Habit into Practice: Learn
Gary Chapman developed a theory known as love languages in his book The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Last. Chapman suggests that everyone has a way that they choose to give and receive messages of love to others, a language that they speak. The 5 love languages are: Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Gifts, Physical Touch, and Quality time. The main idea is simple: the way we most easily get the message, “I love you, you matter” is the way that we are most likely to show others that they are loved and matter to us. The key to healthy relationships of all kinds is to pay attention to the way that others most often show their love and then to learn to speak their (love) language. In paying attention and learning to speak a new language we can intentionally BLESS others in effective ways that help share God’s love.

How to Live Like a Christian
Living as a faithful disciple in our world offers real challenges. Whether we’re dealing with the temptations of social media or wondering how to engage those we disagree with the Book of James is full of practical advice for Christians.

All the Feels
The Psalms show us a full range of human emotions that the writers felt without censoring them. What would it look like for us to talk honestly about the feelings we experience without hiding them from God and others? Knowing God created all these emotions and understands can give us “all the feels.”
