Disciples, Apostles, and Saints!
As we move from the season after Epiphany, we enter the season of Lent. This season is known for its penitential character; and for people feeling the need to “give things up”. These are part of the tradition of Lent.
The central theme of Lent, however, is learning. Or, to put it more theological language, discernment.
The earliest followers set this season apart as the season to prepare newcomers and to prepare the congregation for change and adaptation. We are to learn during this time about our faith—and about ourselves.
We are once again learning about the saints by participating in the festive Lent Madness phenomenon.
And we will explore Revelation in our weekly Potluck and Apocalypse on Sunday nights at 6 pm. Sign up here if you plan to join us!
And be here Tuesday, February 13th at 5:30 pm for our annual pancake supper as we celebrate one last time before Lent!
Then come back Wednesday, February 14th at noon or 6 pm for Ash Wednesday services in the chapel. This is our annual reminder of the nature of the season and invitation to keep a holy Lent. Please join us for as much as you can!
