Sunday night, we began our journey through the season of Lent, The Invitation to Let Go. Jason reminded us that the core of our identity is rooted in our belovedness in Christ, but there are many voices surrounding us that compete with God’s voice of love. Then, Jason invited us to craft an experiment for the next 40 days that will help us to begin letting go of any false voices that distract us from God’s voice of love. You can find the experiment handout here.
This week, consider where you are at with your Lenten experiment. Perhaps you need to fine-tune your experiment and prayerfully make next steps, or maybe you are ready to jump in and begin the practices that will help you listen to the loving voice of God. When you are ready, make time to share your experiment with a close friend or a small group.
