Lent 5 (Image of God: What to hold dear, what to release)
Cincinnati Mennonite Fellowship's Lenten theme is "Be Still and Know." The invitation is to notice in the stillness what to shed and what to hold dear. Noticing what is blocking life and what we claim as life-giving are both kinds of confession. This week, Pastor Renee leads us deeper into that stillness by examining the image's of God we carry with us. Her sermon presents us with curated excerpts from Good Goats: Healing our Image of God by Dennis Linn, Sheila Fabricant Linn, and Matthew Linn. As you sit with this essay and the stories presented in it, reflect on your images of God and how they impact your life; notice in what ways they may give you life, and in what ways they may be blocking life.
