Our Ministries and Priorities
Lent & Easter at Rock Spring
Figuring Out Faith with Peter
This Lent, we are focusing on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples. Peter often seems like a background character when we look at the stories in the gospels, but he is the second most referenced person. In Peter, we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. In Peter, we often see ourselves. By following Peter’s journey, we watch the story of Jesus unfold through the eyes of a very normal human trying to figure it all out—just like us.
If we try to put ourselves in Peter’s shoes, it might seem as though Peter himself wrote the classic hymn, “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing.” We will sing our way through Lent, each week highlighting a different line from this hymn.
In this series, we want to affirm that faith is a constant journey of steadfast pursuit, one that ebbs and flows. We want to affirm that wandering is exploration, not necessarily distance from God. We want to affirm the ways Peter keeps going: he drops his nets, he walks on water, he runs to the empty tomb, he swims to the shore to meet the risen Christ. He keeps searching and yearning and loving, even after missteps or mistakes. This Lent, we will look for ourselves in the steppingstones of Peter’s story. We will reflect on the stages of our own faith journeys as well as who and what has shaped us along the way. As we wander, let us tune our hearts to sing God’s grace. May we rest in streams of mercy, never ceasing.
We are also offering a daily devotional email (ask to be added to the mailing list) and a variety of opportunities to engage in hands-on service and fellowship. Read about all of our offerings in the Rock Spring News.
