about the theme

The new year offers the chance to strive toward the “New You” and shrug off the disappointments of the year prior. In the midst of the bustle towards personal growth, Lent encourages us to dwell on the life-giving ways of God and what God’s best for us is. He is the water that nourishes and refreshes, propelling us into new challenges. The relief after being in the wilderness far too long, holding and hoping that life will soon turn around. God fills us to the brim with courage, strength, and inspiration if we are willing to receive it. We embrace the theme of hope flowing and refreshing like water.
