Sundays & Wednesday’s during Lent (4/3-4/10)

“Busy:  Reconnecting with an Unhurried God”

“Come to me all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” ~Matthew 11:28


The season of Lent has often been a time  when we think about "Giving something up" - a holdover from its penitential flavor in the medieval church.  But what if we thought less about :giving up" and more about "making room?"  In this Lent series, we will find out what it really costs to be so busy.  Let us reconnect to an Unhurried God.
