“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” (Matt. 4:17)
Lent is a season of repentance. As we prepare for the unbearable pain of Good Friday and the overwhelming joy of Easter, Christians for centuries have viewed the six weeks building up to those events as a time for a sort of spiritual housecleaning. We give things up to symbolize our desire to strengthen our faith.
But what if “repenting” has less to do with behavior modification and more to do with a whole new way of being? What if it’s not so much about the bad habits or sins we need to give up, but a radical reorientation of our lives?
This week at New Wineskins, we’ll talk about repentance in a way you may not have thought about it before. And we’ll look at how this season of Lent can be for us a season that’s less about self-denial and more about abundant blessing.
Join us this Sunday, Feb. 28, at the Marietta Brewing Company for good food, good friends, and good conversation!
Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm
Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
