Liturgical Meditations | Lent

(Stop! Slow down. In your heart. Be still. Watch this.)

“Hunger and Healing” evokes the expectant lament of Lent through the arid landscapes of the Salton Sea and Imperial Sand Dunes, with scripture drawn from Isaiah 58. The meditation was filmed by FULLER studio at Marion County, Iowa; St. Andrew’s Church in Pasadena, California; the Salton Sea; and Imperial Sand Dunes in Imperial County, California.

The audio for this video is in Spanish with titles in Korean, Mandarin, and English. For FULLER studio: Lauralee Farrer, director; Ron Allchin, producer; Nate Harrison, director of photography; Lindsey Sheets, cinematographer; Timothy Kay, cinematographer; Tim Ronca, cinematographer; Patrick O’Neil Duff, editor; Jennifer Hernandez, narration; OX Creative, titles.

The liturgical calendar spans the life of Christ in a single year—from anticipation (Advent), to hope (Christmas), to transcendence (Epiphany), to lament (Lent), to redemption (Easter), to the birth of the church (Pentecost), and through long, numbered days (Ordinary Time) back to Advent. The liturgical meditation series to which this video belongs relies on nature to tell the story of God, accompanied by scriptures traditional to each season.
