This Week at Worship

We marked Ash Wednesday this week - February 14 to be exact - and have begun our Lenten journey to Jerusalem, to the Cross of Good Friday and the promise of new life on Easter Sunday. It is a 40 day journey that we are taking (actually it's 46 days but we don't count Sundays during Lent as they are seen as "little Easters.") Whether you have given something up for Lent or taken something on, may you know you do not walk alone thru the wilderness to the Cross. We all make this journey together with Jesus walking at our side.

 

Our scripture readings this Sunday are from the Book of Genesis, Chapter 9, verses 8 thru 17 and the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 1, verses 9 thru 15. In our first reading, we hear of God's covenant made to Noah, to all his descendants and to us. It is a covenant made by God without condition to be with God's people throughout eternity. In our reading from the Gospel, we hear once again of Jesus' baptism and how Jesus was in the wilderness, tempted by Satan.

 

It is a long weekend for some (at least those who do not work for the federal government) and I do hope to see you in community this Sunday as we sing, pray, listen and reflect on God's call to us as we journey to Jerusalem. Wherever you may be this weekend, may you experience much laughter and love both in the giving and receiving and take time to give thanks to God for the blessings we have. And, not to bribe you into coming to church this Sunday (grin), but, but, but....do note that there might just be a Lenten gift for everyone this Sunday. Remember last year's where I gave away money (my luck ran out - no money this year)? This is just to say, maybe you ought to take up a Lenten practice of coming to worship each Sunday of Lent. You never know what surprises might me in store.

 

Have a blessed weekend.
