Grace to you and peace, from God Our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! It was fun to bump into Darryl at the Co-op today and have him ask with affirmation, “tomorrow is bread Sunday, right?” Yes, we care for others by bringing bread to church as we enter the season of Lent. At our Ash Wednesday service, we spoke of our invitation into the season, which includes both looking inward in self-reflection and repentance as we turn toward God, and also looking outward while “giving alms,” caring for others as we turn to God in other ways. Finding personal balance and community energy can be a goal for us this fast season as we prepare our hearts on the journey toward Holy Week that continues tomorrow.
Words like holy and fast are new for some of us and deserve our attention as we consider what it means to grow our faith and faithfulness. See you at church!
