Lent 6: Alone in the Dark

Our sixth installment of our Lent Series: Prayer in the Darkness.

John 17:21-22
Jesus prays “I pray they will be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. I pray that they also will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me. I’ve given them the glory that you gave me so that they can be one just as we are one.” There is a difference between being alone and being lonely. We can learn from Jesus as he walks the lonely path to the cross. Small groups become a primary way we find community. – Pastor Brian Johnson

Alone in the Dark

Lent 4: Scared of the Dark

Our fourth installment of our Lent Series: Prayer in the Darkness.

John 12:27-28
Jesus prays ““Now I am deeply troubled. What should I say? ‘Father, save me from this time’? No, for this is the reason I have come to this time. Father, glorify your name!” We all face decisions that we know are what we must do. Yet, going through with the decisions challenges us to the core. In Jesus’ prayer we see how he faced his own decisions and found God’s leading. – Pastor Brian Johnson

Scared of the Dark

Lent 3: Decisions in the Dark

Our third installment of our Lent Series: Prayer in the Darkness.

Matthew 11:25-26 – Jesus prays “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you’ve hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have shown them to babies. Indeed, Father, this brings you happiness.”  Why does God hide good news from some, and reveal it to others? In prayer we can explore the depths of God, and find revealed the heart of the Father – Pastor Brian Johnson
