Under the Wings

Gathered Up in Jesus

Second Sunday in Lent, Year C

It might be time for someone to tell his/her story. A testimony of the healing power of grace and love can be a big help to worshipers in comprehending this gift. Perhaps there is a story in the serving ministries of the church, someone who was loved and accepted and served, even while feeling unworthy of such a gift. These stories are ways of letting folks know that grace abounds and still has the power to change lives.

The season of Lent this year centers on surrendering ourselves and allowing to be gathered up in Jesus as we journey through these forty days. It’s a time of introspection and reality checks, while we also hope for a future where we will be nurtured and held in the arms of Jesus. Jesus tells us how he wants to gather us up, like a mother hen gathers her brood. He wants us to claim him, to run to him, to be loved and cared for by him. But this is not to avoid the Lenten examination. Rather, it is to be able to endure it. Following are some ideas for music for this series to enhance and complement the readings. It’s a long worship series; and often it helps to have one or two theme songs that you can use in a variety of ways in worship to keep it interesting.
