Join us for the Lenten Season

 

       I hope that you will plan to join us for the season of Lent. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, meaning “lengthen” and refers to the lengthening days of spring. The forty days of Lent represent the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptations and preparing to begin his ministry. This year, our theme for Lent is “Bless the Lent We Actually Have,” based on the work of Kate Bowler. Here are the topics for each week:

            Ash Wednesday – February 14th, 7:00 p.m.    Blessed are the Fragile

            First Sunday of Lent                                     Blessed are the Imperfect

            Second Sunday of Lent                                 Blessed are the Curious

            Third Sunday of Lent                                    Blessed are those who Suffer

            Fourth Sunday of Lent                                 Blessed are those who Feel Alone 

            Fifth Sunday of Lent                                      Blessed are those who Mourn

            Palm Sunday   March 24th                             Blessed are the Rejected

            Easter Sunday March 31st                             Blessed are those who still Hope

 

Invite a friend to join you as we move through this sacred season together.

On the journey with you,

Tracy

LOOKING TOWARDS EASTER

My Dear Friends, As our Lenten season begins to wind down, we look forward to Easter Sunday. On Sunday, March 3, we saw the Alleluia banner being marched out of the sanctuary on the final hymn. This symbolic act is meant to emphasize the penitential nature of our journey through Lent. "Alleluia" is the song of thechoirs, a song we do not sing during our days of repentance...

MARCH AND LENT

My Dear Friends, The arrival of the month of March, with its wind and fury, also signals that the holy season of Lent is upon us. I like to look at Lent as an appropriate way to prepare for Easter Sunday. During Lent we ponder the brevity of life, we think about our sins (and confess them), and we meditate on the long and treacherous journey Jesus traveled on his way to ...
