Purple Theory – Lent 2021 @ Tabernacle

Posted on Tuesday February 16th, 2021

This Lenten series explores a different spiritual discipline each week, starting with self-examination, then prayer, scripture meditation, fasting, confession, worship, silence and gratitude.

Similar to the popular OrangeTheory fitness program that focuses on a healthy balance of intense workout and therapeutic recovery, Purple Theory will help you get spiritually fit by blending a challenge of stepping outside your comfort zone with recovery practices allowing you to heal.

February 17 (Wednesday)    “Self-Examination”           Psalms 51: 6 – 12

February 21                       “Prayer”                            Romans 8: 18 – 27

February 28                       “Scripture”                        Psalms 1: 1 – 3

March 7                             “Fasting”                           Matthew 6: 14 – 18

March 14                           “Confession”                     1 John 1: 1 – 10

March 21                           “Worship”                         1 Corinthians 10:31 – 11:1

March 28 (Passion Sunday)  “Silence”                           Mark 14: 32 – 41

April 1 (Holy Thursday)       “Love One Another”          John 13: 1 – 17, 31 – 35

April 2 (Good Friday)          “Darkness”                        John 18 & 19 (selected)

April 4 (Resurrection Day)   “Gratitude”                        Luke 24: 1 – 12, 50 – 53

Sunday morning worship takes two forms.  You are invited in-person at 9:15 am in the Tabernacle Sanctuary.  This experience also will be livestreamed on Tabernacle’s Facebook page (or viewed later).  At 11:00 am, Pastor Glenn offers an online-only worship service on Facebook and via the ZOOM platform.  For more information on how to connect, please visit

Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday, and Good Friday worship events will be offered in the Sanctuary as well as online.  These evening services will begin at 7:00 pm.

Purple Theory is a very engaging series.  We hope and pray that you will be able to participate in as much of it as possible.  Yes, this may be an intense workout.  But if the goal is to be spiritually fit, then putting the effort in God’s Gym is eternally worth it.
