What’s going on?
Lent is a season of self-examination and repentance, a time of special awareness of what Jesus did for us when He took our place on the cross. We understand Easter better when we spend time in Lent first. Our Ash Wednesday service was a time of quiet reflection and prayer, which prepared us well for a Lent season that will focus on depth and growth and health.
If you have emotional scars, unhealed wounds, or baggage you can’t seem to let go of, our Grow Deeper series will help you find wholeness. The series does NOT come with a guarantee for a pain-free life, but it will give you some tools for redeeming pain and transforming trials:
- Weekly Grow Deeper messages and teachings, beginning February 22
- Daily devotional readings from Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day, available for purchase in the lobby
- A potentially life-changing book, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
- Small groups of other people who want to Grow Deeper—sign up at the Connection Booth in the lobby
You do not have to be a member of Living Springs to take advantage of any of these opportunities. We are all on this journey of growth together, and we can all learn from each other!
