At the beginning of Lent, we follow Jesus into the desert as we start our new series – ‘Worship in the Wilderness’. Before he started his ministry, Jesus prepared himself as he was “led by the Spirit into the desert. He was in the desert for forty days where he was tested and tempted by Satan.” (Mark 1:12-13).
As we journey with Jesus, we will learn to worship in the wilderness, where conditions can be harsh and involve things like fasting, solitutude, simplicity and sacrifice. Wilderness Worship can look very different from other forms of worship that we might be familiar with. As we take our first steps, Rev Jane Rowell provides food for thought for our Spirit-led journey. Our music reflects the Lenten theme, and we reflect on a visual reading from the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy.
