SJTW does preaching series where the parish spends a few weeks doing a deep dive into a certain topic and the sermons all follow a theme chosen by a team. The theme for Lent was “Transform?” I used InDesign to design the image and logo for the series. This image was shared online and on the screens in the church and served as the identity for the theme to help parishioners connect the messages together. I also wrote the below paragraph to introduce the theme to parishioners and visitors.
Picture Lent. You’re probably thinking about what you’re going to give up this year and what fish fries you’ll try to go to. While these are good things to do, we sometimes lose sight of what Lent is really calling us to. This season calls us to something much more wonderful and terrifying. It can be hard to think about, but Lent calls us to be transformed. This is a time to let the Holy Spirit into our lives and to allow our lives to be positively changed by that presence. Join us as we each ask, “How am I going to allow the Holy Spirit to transform me this Lent?”Introduction to the Lent 2019 theme, “Transform?”
