Journey with Jesus–Lenten Resources

17 01 2008

Last year, Christine Sine developed a guide for Lent in response to the frustration of hearing friends say they would give up chocolate for Lent. There is much more to Lent that giving up a vice.

Posted below is the downloadable Lenten guide entitled “A Journey Into Wholeness.” Christine had hoped to update it for this year, but with conference planning, she has not had the time. It is still poignant and challenging, so please feel free to use it to get the most out of this important season of Lent.

The New Conspirators: Liturgy–Community (Thursday Evening)

31 10 2007

by Christine Sine, Mustard Seed Associates

God who is community come to us this night.

Embrace us in your love,

Unite us with your spirit,

Make us one in you.

(silence)

God of all creation you come to us in community,

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

Perfect relationship, perfect community

Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, you come

The three in one, the one in three

You offer us community

That together we might grow spiritually

And become mature in Jesus Christ

We need your community

To keep us accountable to your call

For we are called to serve one another

We need your community

To equip and develop your Holy Spirit gifts

So that we can build one another up

We need your community

For prayer and encouragement

For fellowship and festivity, for worship of you

We need your community

To witness to your all-inclusive love

For only in community are we made whole

One people together, family of the living God
