Unraveled Presbytery of Detroit Sample Page
Unravel (v.): Untangle, unsnarl, unwind; elucidate, decipher, reveal, clarify.
This worship series explores stories of unraveled shame, identity, fear, grief, dreams, and expectations. These are stories where God meets us in the spiraling, unraveling our plans—and us—into something new. We hope these stories and resources provide opportunities for deep reflection, meaningful connection, and perhaps a bit of clarity.
This 12-week series could be used at any time throughout the year. We hope you will customize it, arranging the stories into the order and duration that works best for your context.
