Lent 2023 – Seeking: Honest Questions for a Deeper Faith

Our sacred scriptures offer us many stories of Jesus encountering people who are seeking: Nicodemus comes to him in the veil of night, he approaches a Samaritan woman at a well, he heals a man born without sight. In these stories, each person is seeking a new beginning, a different life, a deeper faith. What unfolds in each of the stories is an exchange filled with questions and exploration. Often an unveiling occurs – assumptions are disrupted, a new perspective is revealed, mystery grows.

This Lent at AHCC, we invite you to journey with us on an exploration of diving deeper into who we are, where we fit in in the world, and where God is in our lives. Like the characters in each story we will read and examine this Lenten season, we are all seeking something: clarity, connection, wonder, justice, balance. We are seeking our calling, the sacred, and how to live better lives in community. Our theme for 2023 is “Seeking: Honest Questions for a Deeper Faith,” and we are excited to share opportunities for meaningful worship, reflective practices, and connection with each other.

During this season, we invite you to engage in the spiritual practice of seeking. We encourage you to stay curious, open, and nimble. We hope you will soften your assumptions and expand your perspectives. We pray that our time together will allow our questioning to create safe spaces for all of us to explore and to be drawn more deeply into the fullness of life – into the heart of God.
