It was so great to gather virtually again last Sunday night for our Palm Sunday worship service at the Practice Unplugged. In this difficult season, it has been so meaningful to worship, learn, and practice together in our own homes. As the final night of our series on The Invitation to Let Go, Jason Feffer invited us into the story of the Triumphal Entry of Jesus. Just like those in Jerusalem, we all have expectations for who God is and what it means to follow Christ. Yet, Christ often exceeds our expectations and defies our ideas about Him. How might we begin to let go of our expectations and receive the graces God offers?

In this final week of Lent, continue to engage with your experiment. Reflect and pay attention to how you have been experiencing God throughout the experiment. Notice your expectations of God and begin to open yourself up to how God may work in unexpected ways.
