Second Sunday of Lent: Listening to Our Bodies & Finding Our Breath
March 13, 2022 @ 10:00 am
Lent 2022: Listen
Come and listen to the sacred text that connects our own aliveness with the breath of God. Together let us “pray without ceasing” as we pay attention to our breathing and believe that breathing is prayer. God blew breath into us at creation, and we continue to breathe all of creation in and out of our bodies constantly. The early church also believed that breath and Spirit were one in the same. As we sigh, let us join our breath with the Spirit that beckons us to the deep and promises to join us in spaces of love that work together to believe in a God breathed life for all. Come, spirit, come, and let us rise on your wings.
For the March Mission of the Month we will be taking a special Change the World offering this Sunday to help support Sunnyside UMC’s Community Garden. During the service, those attending in person will be asked to come forward and offer their gifts. If you would like to donate online, you may do so on our website.
Additional resources: The Daily Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern God’s direction for us. The Examen is an ancient practice in the Church that can help us see God’s hand at work in our whole experience.
Join us in person or online for worship on Sundays at 10am. If you’re joining us in person, please review our updated Covid practices.
Worship note: Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday, March 14 at 2am! Make sure to set your clocks forward one hour.
