Upside Down Love Like Jesus

Upside Down Love Like Jesus

Upside Down Love Like Jesus  

No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth.  In this year’s Lenten series, we’re going to investigate the radical upside-down way that Jesus has called us to love Him and others.

LOVE LIKE JESUS

Feb. 4th – Forgiving (whether we want to or not!)

Feb. 11th – Pastor Kathy Smith introduces us to a Foot-Washing God

And then on the 18th we’ll transition into

UPSIDE-DOWN LOVE

Where we start at the Last Supper which begins a walk through the final 24 hours of Jesus’ life, experiencing the events of Jesus’ suffering and death in a powerful way.

As we look at the geographical and historical setting of the events on that fateful day, we understand the significance of these events in new ways.  Whether you are a long-time Christian or simply curious about the story of Christ’s crucifixion, you will find this series a powerful reminder of an amazing Upside-Down Love.

Lent is a time for reflection, on who we are and who we want to become in Christ Jesus. We agonize over His sacrifice for us. Yet if Jesus’ suffering and death were because of us, we also believe that his life and death were for us: demonstrating not only the love of God for our wayward world, but the way out of our unrelenting cycle of suffering and death: that finally, love is stronger than hate, good is greater than evil, life will triumph over death.

As Martin Luther King said, “The moral arc of the universe may be long, but it bends toward justice.”
