EXILE

During this Lent series, we are exploring the theme of ‘Exile’, which is a major thread running throughout the whole of Scripture. As we saw with the Israelites, there are many today who are forced into exile by forces outside of their control and equally, as Jesus pointed out, we can become exiles of our own making. The challenge of ‘alienation’ is found not just in the Old Testament, but through Jesus’ own life and ministry and into our own lives.

We are reminded that ‘Exile’ is a refrain that affects the whole human condition. Why is it that we often feel ‘disoriented? Why does it feel that ‘we are so far from home?’ And, ‘Is there a way back?’ We all long to feel a sense of ‘being home’; a place of belonging and peace.

In this Lenten series, we will be exploring those things that cause us to feel alienated both internally, and externally. This series will lead us into Easter as we prepare ourselves for the way in which God answers this problem of exile.
