The MICAH Project invites you to get into "Good Trouble" during Lent by reflecting on the words of the the late Representative John Lewis. We will offer one blog post for each of the five weeks of Lent to encourage you to think about how we might get into the "Good Trouble" that furthers our spiritual formation and contributes to racial healing.
Each week’s post contains: (1) a quotation from John Lewis, (2) prayer or scripture relating to the quotation, (3) reflections or action items, and (4) a link to a video or website relating to the quotation.
Let's get started:
“Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America.”
Jesus, when you call us to challenge authority,
Help us to follow closely your example,
That we may be ready to suffer for the truth,
And to give whatever glory there may be to God.
New Zealand Prayer Book, p. 567
What kinds of “good trouble” have you gotten into in your life?
What kind of “good trouble” is God calling you to perform?
How much risk are you willing to take?
