February 21, 2021 – First Sunday of Lent

“I’m made of thunder

I’m made of lightning

I’m made of dirt (yeah)

Made of the fine things

My father taught me that I’m a speck of dust

And this world was made for me

So let’s go and try our luck.

I am resilient

I trust the movement

I negate the chaos

Uplift the negative

I’ll show up at the table, again and again and again.”

– Rising Appalachia

God made us for resilience, but how do we claim and live into that resilience again and again? Starting this Sunday, we begin exploring this theme throughout Lent. Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West reflects on God’s covenant with creation.
