God’s message of forgiveness, reconciliation, hope, healing, and love can be found in so many wonderful and often unexpected places. Even in a television show about an American, who knows nothing about soccer, who is hired to coach a languishing English football (soccer) team who uses salty language. This worship series, The Lasso Lectionary, will be based on Ted Lasso, the Apple TV series and will begin third week in April.
This Lent we will take a Journey of the Heart as we explore, step by step, the transformative power of Twelve Step Spirituality found in recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Al- Anon. We will look at how we can surrender our lives over to God, take an honest look at who we are, admit our wrongdoings, seek forgiveness and remaining in constant contact with the God of our understanding—all lessons of faith that Jesus taught his Disciples as he journeyed to the cross.
