All the Light of Sacred Story

Lent at Shadyside

During the season of Lent, we journey with Jesus to the cross as we prepare to retell the sacred story of our Lord’s suffering, death, and resurrection. We find that God’s response to every darkness we face in the world is to enter into the darkness alongside us. We remember that the cross was a pivotal moment in redemption history, but it is not the end of the story. Christ still journeys with us through the darkness, ever leading us by His light into new life in the Triune God.
