Lenten Services and Theme

Sometime around the year 762 BC, Amos, a herdsman from the small Judean town of Tekoa, heard the voice of God and compared it to hearing the roaring of a lion, a roaring that causes pastures to mourn and forests to wither (Amos 1:2). That is some kind of roar! The prophet then encounters the Lord as a Lion (3:12), and this propels him to confront Israel’s movers and shakers who were deaf to God’s call of justice and righteousness.

This Lent, we will listen to the Lion as He rumbles through the book of Amos. The message of his book is singular—Restore the Roar! On Easter, the roar of God’s saving love is restored forevermore!
