Lift Up your voice

SPRING (LENT & EASTER) AT CAIRN 

Lift Up Your Voice

Lent is a season of reflection, confession, spiritual nurturing, contemplation and meditation as we walk the journey with Jesus to the cross. It is a time to consider what his death on a cross meant and what it means today as we prepare to receive the good news of Easter. This Lent our theme is “Lift Up Your Voices”, taken from a song from the Taize community in France and printed on the front of the bulletin. On this journey to the cross, and beyond to Easter hope, and beyond that to the birth of the church on Pentecost, we are confronted with our own wrestling with life and death, faith and doubt, joy and suffering, and being in this world but not of this world. In each of these, it can be hard at times to express the depth of emotions and thoughts we have. At other times these emotions and thoughts are loud without being clear, or clear without being loud. Sometimes we need to find our voice within the cacophony of voices that surround us. In this journey, we will explore our voices in poetry, prose and song as we express who we are in light of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus.
