Lent 2023 | Vol 5. No.2

The journal this Lent consists of two different writings. One is letters from some of our pastoral staff to Pillar, to you! And additionally we have a few “Not What I Want” stories from the congregation riffing off Jesus’ words in the Garden before he was to be crucified. Throughout the pages we are also featuring new art created by Allison Spoelhof, Eloise Kehrer, and Blake Johnson. That scene from Mattew 26:36-46 will guide us throughout the season. With that in mind, it might be a good idea to read it, over and over, interiorize it, get it “inside.” As we walk in faith through Lent together, it may just prompt a “Not What I Want” testimony of your own.

Peace and a “good lent” to you,
- Jonathan Gabhart
