Introducing our 2009 Lenten Devotional: Meet! Experience! Live!
In the last year and a half we have introduced a mission statement to the congregation that we have wanted to become ingrained in the hearts, minds, and actions of the family members of St. John's Lutheran Church, La Grange, Illinois. After much contemplation and wrestling with words, we adopted "Meet! Experience! Live!" as the words to describe the mission of our Congregation. It is our hope that each person who walks through our doors will Meet Jesus, that they will Experience the support of a church (whether it is ours or not) and Live as His disciples.
Therefore it is appropriate that we have formulated our annual Lenten Devotional around these words that mean so much to us. The Six weeks of Lent are divided into three sections. Each section's devotions are centered on one of the key words of our mission: Meet, Experience, and Live. Then each week explores a part of the passion story that expands each of those words beginning with Jesus entering Jerusalem and ending with Jesus reinstating Peter after His resurrection.
We pray that through this devotional you become closer to God in your faith walk and that you would start to see places in your daily life where you Meet, Experience, and Live the love of God.
