From the Pastor
I hope you are all staying warm in this record –breaking winter. Last month, I spoke about the beauty of winter in the snow, sunrises and sunsets. This month I’m not as excited about it but still able to see God’s hand in creation and be thankful.
As the dark days of winter drag on, this month we begin the season of Lent—a time of spiritual darkness. In fact, Lent commemorates the darkest days in the history of the world, as the shadows fall upon the cross of Christ.
But Lent also reminds us that we are not lost in sin. As we look inward and reflect on our own lives, the shadow of the cross helps us to remember that there is forgiveness and peace.
Beginning on Ash Wednesday and continuing through Easter, our Lenten series this year helps us to “Face the Cross”. As we gather each Wednesday and during Holy Week, we will learn from Jesus what the journey to the cross is all about. I hope you will join us and be inspired to reflect and, if need be, to realize all that God has in store for your life.
Rev. Janet E. Lewis
