Ash Wednesday

This year Lent begins on Wednesday February 13.  We will observe the beginning of Lent with 2 simple Ash Wednesday service; one beginning at 2:00pm and other at 7:00pm.  

The season of Lent calls us to an intentional time of seeking God through confession, prayer, and fasting (fasting from food, technology, certain behaviors, etc.)  Our Ash Wednsday service will invite us into this season using Henri Nouwen's reflections on the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke chapter 15.  Nouwen was a Catholic Priest and a prolific writer on Christian spirituality who was well-known for serving with the L’Arche community to provide living assistance to those with develomental disabilities.  A turning point in Nouwen's own spiritual journey came from reflecting on the parable of the Prodigal Son in which he said he saw "the whole gospel" anew.  

You are welcome to come join us for our services at 2:00 and 7:00.  The services will be short, about a half-hour in length, and at different times to accomodate different schedules.
