a theme for Lent Year B
about God’s promises
that form us
Have you ever been changed by a promise?
Sure you have. We all have.
Maybe it was a girl whose pinky-sworn friendship strengthened you to slay the dragons of childhood. Maybe it was a partner whose promise of faithfulness gave you the courage to build a chosen family. Maybe it was a community whose tender vow to embrace you gave you the vulnerability to grow.
And definitely it was the God who searched your heart and knew it completely, all of its little joys and great sorrows and haunting mistakes and glorious triumphs, and then said in a voice that cracks mountains and causes rivers to flow:
Throughout these forty days, “Promise Us” traces the promises God makes in the Hebrew Bible to folks like Noah, Abram & Sarai, and to us, and how those promises shape us…and the God who makes them.
