In the New Testament, the Greek word synergos (pronounced "SOON-er-gahs") is translated "companion in labor",
"fellow helper", "workfellow", and "co-worker". Paul uses it when he refers to his partners in ministry--people like Priscilla, Aquilla, and Timothy. You might recognize it from its English cousin, synergy, which means "working together".
This Lent, we will also explore what it is to work together by partnering together for Lent in a radical way.
So many times, we choose Lenten disciplines that are difficult, but also a bit of a cop-out.
Chocolate? Again? Really?
Our friends have an uncanny way of knowing what would actually benefit us most,
and they also have the gumption to hold us accountable.
So, in the synergos program,
we pick each other's Lenten discipline.
Here's How It Works:
You sign up for synergos by filling out a short, confidential questionnaire
The Campus Minister pairs you with a synergos partner
Partners are notified and given access to resources to help choose each other's disciplines
You support your synergos throughout Lent; they do the same for you
At Easter, you celebrate!
