Second Sunday of Lent: Psalms of Disorientation and Reorientation - Where is God?: Experiencing Disorientation

On this second Sunday of Lent we continue our focus on Psalms of Disorientation and Reorientation in which we are preparing e ourselves for the new life that comes through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ at Easter.  We are reminding ourselves in what ways our lives are so often disoriented from the ways of God and as we engage these Psalms in Lent we seek to be open to being reoriented to the ways of God.

The message for this second Sunday of Lent focused on Psalm 22

Connect to Where is God? - Experiencing Disorientation. In this message, we experience disorientation when it more than seems God abandons us - we actually feel abandoned by God.  Deep cries from our souls emanate when we are left alone by God.  Jesus also cried this cry from the cross.  Yet, as he recited Psalm 22 it became an expression of trusting God to be with him, even as he entered into death.

May we also discover God to be with us, when we feel that God has abandoned us - may our new cry be in times of difficulty and struggle, "My God, my God, you are with me!"
