Lenten Letter

This year February 14th is not just Valentine’s Day. It is Ash Wednesday. If you are wondering what happened on Ash Wednesday in the Bible, you should know the answer is nothing.

Ash Wednesday does however have significance for all Christians. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. The ashes symbolizes: the grief one has for the death of Jesus; the symbolic turning of one's heart towards God; the recognizing of the brokenness that exists between God and humanity and the brokenness in the world; the need for salvation.

Lent is a time of solemnity and self-reflection where we confess our failings and resolve to live a more godly life based on the teachings of the Bible.

Traditionally it is marked by giving up something for Lent. The giving up of chocolate, sweets, meat, etc., sadly does nothing to help live a more godly life.

So I invite you to join me in giving up 1 or 2 minutes each day of the 40 Days of Lent to do something that will help us to live a more godly life. I invite you to read each day the verse of scripture below:

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me - Isaiah 51:1-2,10-12

If not this passage of scripture then choose some other passage. Every passage of scripture is meant to teach, correct, rebuke, train us to live a righteous life.

I look forward to worshipping with you during this season of Lent. Let me also remind you starting this Sunday, February 18 worship will be begin at 10:00 AM

Godspeed
Pastor Rich
