"You are the light of the world. In the same way, let your light shine before others,so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven."- Matthew 5:14,16
FROM PASTOR ART
The Christian observance of Lent
provides forty days, not counting Sundays, to anticipate the promises of
Easter. Some traditions include daily
quiet time to read and study the enduring themes of the gospels, the teachings
of Jesus, his parables.
Some traditions advocate “giving up
something dear to us” as a way of recalling the sacrifice that Rabbi Jesus
made, to keep his message clear and focused, even though this would cost him
At Yeamans Park church we mark the
beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 7:00 pm. We worship with prayer, scripture reading,
and the imposition of ashes to our foreheads.
In this way we reflect on our own mortality.
In April, Holy Week calls our
attention to the Palm Sunday entry into Jerusalem of Jesus and his small band
of followers, during the Jewish celebration of the Passover. After a few days, Rabbi Jesus was arrested,
charged with blasphemy and sedition, and put to death on a cross, Rome’s symbol
of its power over its Jewish subjects.
Finally, the Easter promise. The tomb was empty. His followers were amazed to learn that
“death was not the last word.” Jesus
had promised not to leave them orphaned, and his Spirit lived on in their
lives, lives on into the present day.
These forty days, it’s up to you to decide how you will observe Lent. May this season connect you with the enduring Spirit of Christ, with grace, peace, and joy.
The items of the month needed for the food pantry are bags of egg noodles. Donations may be left on the book cart in the hallway. Thank you to all ...
