April 3, the Fourth Sunday of Lent
April 3, 2011 § 1 Comment
During this season of Lent, this blog will focus upon the Scripture found in Hebrews 11.1-12.2 for six days of the week. On the seventh day, Sunday, we will reflect upon practices that encourage us to engage in community.
We do this because we recognize that the life of Christ was not lived in isolation. He lived with and for others. As his followers, we should strive to do the same. One of the ways that we do this is by living within a community of faith. Living as part of a community means that we participate within that community in meaningful ways.
On Sundays during the season of Lent, this blog will offer a suggestion for how you can engage your community of faith. Feel free to modify these suggestions or come up with something different. They are simply meant to encourage you to intentionally join with those around you as followers of Christ.
This week, make an intentional effort to join in prayer with others in your church. This could mean taking advantage of a prayer meeting that your church hosts or participates in. If no such meeting is available, feel free to host one as you are able. Perhaps this could take the form of meeting with a friend for half an hour in a quiet place and spending the time in prayer for each other and the church, as the Holy Spirit guides.
As we journey through Lent together, may we be people of prayer.
