Lent Life Group Questions

We live in a world filled with canyons.

But the vast majority are not geological. They are emotional, relational, financial, spiritual.

Some of us have a canyon between us and a loved one, between us and those people, between us and who we know God is longing us to be.

2020 created new canyons that did not exist before.

The thing is, Christ is inviting us to cross these canyons.

Though canyons can be massive, we will explore 7 steps we see in Scripture that will help us put one foot in front of the other. These 7 steps will give us a path forward toward God’s glory and transformation in our lives.

We all have canyons that need descending and yet as Christ-followers, we have hope as our companion and the light of relentless love blazing the way.

In this lent season, we embark on an adventure that has been waiting for us.

Let’s ask God to help us identify the canyons in our lives, give us the courage to say yes to this 7-week journey, and to follow Jesus to the other side.
