Journey to Jerusalem: Stumble and Fall

Lent is one of the penitential seasons of the church.  It is a time of preparation, self-examination, repentance, and confession.

The Journey to Jerusalem is to the Cross of Christ and the Empty Tomb, where we find grace and forgiveness.  Along the way we stumble and fall, and God gives us the grace to stand up and keep moving forward.

To you, O God,
we confess our sins.
The ways we hurt others
by what we do and say,
as well as by what we don't do and don't say.
Forgive us.
And give us the grace to forgive
those who have hurt us.
And help us forgive ourselves.

At Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church, we are committing to journey the 6,150 miles from Elizabethtown, NC to Jerusalem, Israel in our walking, running, swimming, cycling, etc.

Track your miles, share them here, and join us on the Journey to Jerusalem.

We will post those miles online and on our banners in the sanctuary and in our fellowship building.  Together we will make our journey to Jerusalem!
