New Summer Worship Series
“Are we there yet?” Often this is a question we hear during a long journey, after patience has waned, and energy has been sapped. Our sense of adventure is overshadowed by a longing for comfort and stability. We feel lost in the wilderness of the journey. Everything is unknown in this place where the familiar constraints of the world no longer apply.
Our lives experience wilderness journeys in many forms: a season of feeling far apart from God, a season of illness, a season of grief, or a season of injustice. We complain, or lament, and as people of faith we find we have much to learn while we are in the wilderness. Throughout this landscape, God walks with us and transforms us. We find hope on the road and joy in the journey.
Join Rev. Susan Sytsma Bratt for a summer worship series June 14 through July 26 to reflect on lessons learned traveling through seasons of wilderness.
