Knox Waterloo invites you to engage in a radically different kind of Lenten journey this year. Our theme for this year, Full to the Brim, is an invitation into a full life, to be authentically who you are, to counter scarcity and injustice at every turn, to pour out even more grace wherever it is needed. When we allow ourselves to be filled to the brim with God’s lavish love, that love spills over. It reaches beyond ourselves; like water, it rushes and flows, touching everything in its path.

Third Sunday in Lent
Theme: You Are Worthy
Sunday, March 20th at 10 am
The lesson of the fig tree invites us to unpack the source of our worth in a system and society that often measures worthiness by commerce, production, output, success, status, achievement, ethnicity, and/or gender identity. We explore how patience, nurture, asset-based thinking, and audacious hope are counter-cultural practices needed for an expansive life.

Scripture: Luke 13:1-9
