ASH WEDNESDAY: We come at last to the beginning of Lent! For those who can make it safely to church this evening, we will join together in our Ash Wednesday Service beginning at 6:00 pm. (I am at church today and the main roads were decent and the secondary roads passable – at least for this former Canuck). If you cannot be present this evening, I encourage you to take some time at home to consider the great Lenten Invitation:
I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance, by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.
Ask yourself how you will respond to that invitation this year, and do so prayerfully, intentionally, and expectantly.
LENTEN FAMILY EVENT: We gather as a church family on Saturday, February 21 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm for a time of fun, fellowship and preparation. Bring something to share with others for the pot luck.
LISTENING FOR GOD: Learning to Read and Meditate on the Scriptures’ begins this Sunday morning (and continues for the next 5 Sundays) from 9:00-9:45 am. If you are wanting to learn a simple way of embracing the DailyOffice while ‘listening’ to and for God, then join us in the Christian Ed space next to the Women’s Rest room.
Let’s look forward to a wonderful ‘observance of a holy Lent’, and let’s do so together!
Peace and grace be with us all.
