Lent 2022: Humility

Philippians 2 opens by naming community dynamics that we’re hungry for:
Encouragement in Christ
Comfort in love
Sharing in the Spirit

As River East Church navigates the complexities
of returning to hybrid in-person and online worship
of conversation with a wider family of faith about inclusion of living in a post-convoy nation and a world at war, what practices do Christ-followers live by so we can experience and share joy?

Philippians 2 offers a counterintuitive pathway:
Live with humility.
Adopt the same attitude that was in Christ Jesus.

It’s a value Christ-followers share with the seven Grandfather Teachings of the Plains First Nations

This year during the season of Lent we walk with Jesus to the cross and pair our worship with the lengthy, many-layered process of repentance and healing after Canada’s settler peoples broke treaties and betrayed Canada’s First Nations. Our goal is to host one preaching series a year dedicated to each of the seven Grandfather Teachings.
