WEDNESDAYS @ TRINITY – beginning February 21st @ 5 PM
We recommend reading and following one or more of the recommendations in “A RULE FOR LENT” to help develop an intentional discipline to observe Lent.
As you come up with a Lenten discipline, consider making Wednesday nights a central part of it. For five Wednesdays (from February 21st through March 21st), we’ll gather for a night of simple worship, food, fellowship and reflection (NOTE: Please read Mark 8:31-38 for Wednesday, February 21st.):
- 5:00 PM Eucharist in the sanctuary
- 5:45 PM Simple soup supper in Brooks Hall
- 6:30 PM Engaging the Gospel
We’re inviting everyone participating to take a share in the supper portion of our evening. When you are at the church, please add your name to participation list to help coordinate on one of the five Wednesdays.
In recent years, our midweek Lenten program has been a book group, but it’s often difficult for everyone to stay with the readings at the same pace.
This year, we’re going to try something different. Not so much a Bible study, but an invitation to join together in engaging – head and heart – the Gospel we’ll all read in church on the following Sunday. More information about the schedule is provided in the February newsletter.
EPISCOPAL RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT
Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) invites us to “Learn from Our Children” with this year’s Lenten Meditations.
ERD Hope Chests and “mite boxes” will be available for your use. (The collection can be returned on the 2nd Sunday of Easter, April 8).
Inspired by college basketball tournaments, Lent Madness “pits” 32 saints against each other in a bracket, as each saint seeks to win the “coveted Golden Halo.” We have an official bracket on the bulletin board in Brooks Hall this morning. We also have a limited number of “Saintly Scorecard” (with biographies of each of the saints) available this morning.
NOTE: On Shrove Tuesday, February 13th, participants will receive brackets to fill out. You can do your own independently or work together (as God intended us to do!) to make your guesses.
