Words That Inspire
Lent arrived at our Ash Wednesday service, and we just celebrated the First
Sunday of Lent. The chancel is draped in purple for the coming days counting
down to Easter. These are reflective days and important days to listen to the
teachings...the words of Jesus.
We have important events planned for the upcoming weeks. We start with the
dinner to raise money for our Haiti Medical Mission, on February 26th. Our Lent
studies have begun and are offered via Facebook Live on Monday nights at 7,
and again in the Parlor here at the church on Wednesday nights at 5:30. The
book of study is written by Jill Duffield, Lent in Plain Sight. Oh, the richness we
find when we have the eyes to see and the ears to hear what God is telling us
and showing us in the ordinary. Ordinary items like dust, bread, the cross, coins,
shoes and oil. Are we seeing...hearing?
Lately, I’ve been working with Becky Smith on a new inquirer’s packet. We now
have a source for those interested in learning about the church and specifically
how to join the church. We are also putting together a new member’s packet.
There are a lot of exciting things going on here!
On the first two Thursdays in March at 10 a.m., I am holding informative classes
in the church Sanctuary concerning the large stained-glass windows. On March
nd, we will be learning about the windows on the south side of the room, and
on March 9th the north side. A brochure on the history of the windows and the
scriptural story they tell will also be available for anyone interested.
Come and join us during this Lent season; come and learn more about how we
can see and hear what God is showing us in the ordinary. Come and learn about
the history of our building, and share in the stories of what our history is
