Music-and-Movies-idea-1-2

Summertime. The resting months. Its a time to kick back and enjoy the finer things in life… sleeping in, sandy beaches, and of course, lots of music and movies.

This summer at The Orchard we’ll be sharing some of our favorite MUSIC and MOVIES, unpacking the stories told within them and looking at how these works of art reflect the deeper things about us, our human nature and our Creator.

This weekend Ben Hammond continued our music and movie series by sharing part of his story, led off by a song called New Law by song writer Derek Webb. He shared his failed pursuit to find meaning and purpose through faith and his eventual need to let go of the control that journey had over his life.

This past weekend Scott Hodge took us on an unconventional journey through the story of Lazarus being raised from the dead (John 11). It’s a story filled with chaos, confusion, grief, humor, and much hope for our lives today.

Lent is a 40-day season that helps us prepare for Easter.  For centuries, Christians have used Lent as an opportunity to shift our pace, slow down, and take an honest and clearheaded look at our lives.  This year, The Orchard Community will practice Lent in a number of ways, beginning with Ash Wednesday, journeying us through Lent, Holy Week, Good Friday and into a life-brimming celebration of resurrection at Easter.

For more about LENT… its origins and how The Orchard Community is practicing it this year, read this post called “Why Lent?”

Visit our 2014 Lent Resources Page for books, films, music and more ideas on how to practice Lent.
