Dear Friends,Te season of Lent is here. We will gather in word, in worship, and by the power of the Holy Spirit beneath the tree of life. Te tree of life is an image of healing and hope. It is an image of strength and nourishment. ake this vision of the New Jerusalem for instance:
Ten the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, ﬂowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
It ﬂowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. Te leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
R :- ()I get lost in this vision that gives us hope and not despair when we are faced with the reality of life across our nation and world today.Tis devotional booklet is about digging through God’s word to uncover that kind of hope, the hope that comes through the tree of life. I pray that this resource will guide you in your personal and Small Group study this Lenten season with inspiring ideas, thoughtful questions and heartfelt prayers. It brings joy to me
