Sunday Worship March 10, 2024

Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! First, a reminder for you:  we set the clocks ahead tonight!  So, while we may “lose an hour of sleep,” we gain light!  See you at 10:00, in daylight savings time.  What an odd concept: with the mere turn of a dial or flip of a number, we change our atmosphere.  Sometimes, don’t we wish we could do that in other ways, as well?  For people of faith–every faith tradition–there is a sense that by following a particular path, our circumstances change.  For Christians, we have a tradition that uses the image of light as that which exposes sin, but in more significant ways, we have the image of light as an eternal promise of what is good, beginning now.  We do not flip a switch in the transformation of our current lives, though, and the season in which we make our way toward Easter resurrection is one in which we focus our intention on living into the light.  We practice our faith in more conscious ways, trusting that God walks with us as we model ourselves after Jesus’ teachings.  It may be that the altered states we seek will be unfamiliar, but no more so than the myriad ways human beings regularly seek to soften suffering.  See you in church, where we regularly seek the joy of community and the promise of God’s grace.

Blessings and peace, Lisa

Worship at Home Materials:  We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday.
