Current W@W Worship Series: Suffering Servants
Lent is difficult. The hardest part of the journey is watching our beloved Jesus suffer. Yet we find that going through the Lenten walk has tremendous benefits. Much has been written over the years about Jesus being the “Suffering Servant.” He is the one who was born to suffer and die for the sake of all humankind. Even more, we trust and believe that we have a God who fully understands our suffering and who participates in our suffering with us.
Why do we walk through Lent, suffering with Jesus? Because he joins with us in our suffering.
During this Lenten season we will focus on the stories of some of those, who have over the years shared their dramatic gifts with the Sheridan community, in putting forth our Holy Week Reenactment. Those who bring the “production” to life, have suffered in their own lives and sharing their gifts allows them to experience the suffering of Christ. Their stories connect to God’s story. But they would not claim to be special in any way. God has always used the ordinary to do the extraordinary. This group is better together – uniting around our suffering servant. We are better together as we unite around our suffering servant.
Is Lent difficult? Yes. Is Lent productive? Very much so – for we connect with God in Christ and one another.
