Lenten Dinners and Devotionals

Join us again this year for Lenten Dinners at Trinity. Lenten Dinners begin at 6 p.m. and end at 7 p.m. each Wednesday February (21, 28) and March (6, 13, and 20). Bring a dish to share.  Together, we will be inspired and encouraged in our own journeys with Christ. 

About Our Theme on Wednesday Nights in Lent

This Lent, we are focusing on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples. 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.

As we study Peter’s faith journey, the lyrics of “Come Thou Fount” come to mind. It’s as if Peter himself wrote this song. Like many of us, Peter has a wandering heart. His journey is not polished, or linear, or perfect, but he is always tethered to the love of God.

In this series, we are reminded that faith is a constant journey of steadfast pursuit, one that ebbs and flows. Notice 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. Ultimately, in Peter’s story, we are reminded that God loves imperfect people—in fact, time and again, that’s precisely who God claims and calls.

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 hope you will join us for this study on Wednesday nights!
