From Pastor Knight-Whitehouse:
Lent is often a time of “giving something up”: candy, alcohol, etc. Or it is a time of “taking up”: practicing kindness, spending more time in prayer.
Perhaps this Lent you might want to think about letting go of things that are unnecessary: worry, fear, short temper, procrastination. Once you spend 6 weeks letting go of these things, you may find that life is better without them.
However you choose to move into this season of self-reflection, repentance, and drawing close to God, I hope you will make regular worship a part of the experience. I will be preaching a sermon series on what are called ‘Understandings of the Atonement”—-or who we understand what was going on at the cross.
In addition, the Session has approved the celebration of the Eucharist every Sunday. No, this is not a “Roman Catholic only” thing—John Calvin wanted to celebrate Eucharist every Sunday. What a wonderful way to be strengthened for service in God’s world, by feasting weekly with our Lord.
May we keep a holy Lent.
