Ash Wednesday, February 10 - The Beginning of the Journey
Join your brothers and sisters in Christ as we begin a 40 day journey through Lent together in worship on Ash Wednesday at 7:00 PM in the sanctuary. We will experience the imposition of ashes and receive the oil of healing as well.
Ashes are placed on the foreheads of the congregation as a symbol that we have come from dust and one day will return to dust. It is one of the many Lenten and Easter customs that remind us of our historical connection with Jewish tradition. With this sobering reminder of life’s fragility, we begin a spiritual quest that continues throughout Lent until Easter. We will also offer anointing oil as a symbol of Christ’s healing power. Traditional readings for this day include: Joel 2:1-2, 12-17; II Corinthians 5:20b-6:10; Matthew 6:1-6, 16-2.
Wednesday Evenings – “Food for Thought” – 6:00 PM
Focus on your spiritual life during Lent by taking a mid-week break for a simple supper of Soup and Bread and then experiencing a time (about 20 – 30) minutes of thoughtful meditation and song in the sanctuary. These times were well received by those who participated in them last year. Many folks said that it was “just what they needed” in the midst of their all too busy schedules. Come and be blessed by the Spirit.
