Give Up Worry for Lent: 40 Days to Finding Peace in Christ
February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
With Guest Author, Gary Zimak
RSVP by February 20
What is Lent all about? The first recorded words of Jesus in Mark’s gospel sum it up nicely: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mk 1:15). Lent is a time to turn away from our earthly attachments and turn towards Christ; to give up bad habits and offer up our suffering to the Lord.
But how many of your past Lenten sacrifices have truly brought you closer to God? While giving up sweets, alcohol, or social media for Lent can certainly be offered up as suffering, it is debatable whether forgoing them will bring about a lasting change in our lives.
Give Up Worry for Lent! suggests a new approach: banishing worry from your life. The Lenten journey involves closing the door on the past. In this presentation, author Gary Zimak encourages you to end your old life of worrying and enter into a new life of peace—with Jesus as your guide. ($10 donation requested)
