Lent and Easter Worship: “Gifts of the Dark Wood” Summary

All Church Worship Brainstorming Summary
Gifts of the Dark Wood

This series based on the book, Gifts of the Dark Wood by Eric Elnes, is about “seeing life through new eyes, recognizing that the experiences of failure, emptiness, and uncertainty are critical for finding our way through life as they are unavoidable.” We will see how experiences of life through the “dark wood” are actually clues to our “calling” or “life path.” How can the struggles be the seedbed of spiritual awakening to the fullness of life?

Seeing these “gifts” as a blessing challenged all sixteen people who showed up at the Booth’s house and shared their ideas for the series. Click here for the summary.
