The Season of Lent

The season of Lent is a time to hone in on an area of life where you are walking carefully.  It is a time to practice the discipline of making a change or creating a structure for listening to God and pay attention to the changes you might need to make.  A Lenten discipline might be giving up chocolate or ice cream but more important is asking the question:  for what purpose?  Why give up something and how does doing so help me address the issue about which I need to listen to God? 

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent — February 26.  We will gather for worship on Ash Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.  Use the next few days to get ready for Ash Wednesday.  What is an area of your life that needs attention? What needs renewal or vitality?  How is God working on you to get you to pay attention?  You won’t be asked to share that concern aloud to others — just bring it and offer it up to God.  

Wednesday, February 25 @ 6:30 P.M.

  • Indulge your appetite as you get ready for Lent!  Enjoy wonderful Dixieland music by musicians Dave Richards, Norman Knight and others and a great pancake supper provided by volunteers from St. Davids’ Episcopal and NUMC working together!  5:00-7:00 p.m on FAT TUESDAY, February 25. 
  • Bring shoes for Lent as we pay attention to our journey with Christ — walking in faith with him.  Shoes will be used during the season and then donated.  You won’t get them back!
  • Sign up on Sunday to join the Lenten study, The Walk on Sundays at noon beginning March 1 for young adults  led by David Hayes or Tuesdays beginning March 3, 6:30 p.m. led by Laura and Dick Young.
