March 1 - April 12, 2009

Our Lenten series this year is entitled Journey: A Portrait of Jesus. Four and a half years ago, as Journey was forming, we asked God what God would want our faith community to be. As we prayed together, it became clear to those listening to God concerning what Journey would look like that several guiding principles were surfacing, and amazingly, they all looked like Jesus. Go figure! As followers of Jesus and members of this faith community, those principles have come to be known as "A Portrait of Jesus." The heart of how we carry out Journey's vision is following Jesus, and practicing our lives as Jesus lived his life. In the weeks leading up to Easter, we will examine seven of those principles and talk about how they remain at the core of who we are as individuals and as a faith community.
