We are a THIRSTY people living in a THIRSTY world - and it goes way beyond water. We reach for all sorts of quenchings to resolve the deep THIRST of our hearts, yet the cross reveals a God who is thirsty too. Within his seven final statements Jesus murmurs unquenchable yearnings. 

 

Come, gather close for this weekend's Lenten worship as this Divine confession speaks to our innermost human needs...
