Please join us for a quiet, meditative Ash Wednesday service Wednesday, February 22 at 5pm.
Lent is a complicated time in the life of the church. On Ash Wednesday we are reminded of our own mortality, and then each subsequent week we are reminded of the impending execution of Jesus. It's a lot.
However, there is also a subversive hope: the hope that comes from knowing the end of the story. Christ rose from death, and by doing so, he declared that neither the corruption of earthy empire or sin had any power in the presence of God.
So, as you see the simplicity of our Lenten services, as you hear the familiar stories, as you receive the ashes and the washing of feet, remember that it is by the love of the God of eternal mercy, that you are blessed.
Blessed in your imperfection, your frailty, your doubt.
So, come. You are beloved, and you are not alone.
