Lent 2019: Moved by Grace

Lent is a time to be MOVED BY GRACE. It is a time to remember who all of creation is: who we are, the stuff of God. Lent offers us an opportunity to tend to our Spiritual life and Spiritual practices. A spiritual life is like two close friends sitting together to watch a sunset. It is more than words can say and no more than we can hold in our hearts. Our practices help us to remember infinite spiritual life and appreciate how it fills and shapes our earthly lives. During Lent we will consider different aspects of spiritual practice and encourage you to spend a short period of time each day focusing on the infinite all around you. Over time we will begin to recognize infinity within us as well. Lent begins March 6th and continues until April 18th. Join us on Sunday mornings for a time of reflection about the implications of the season of Lent in our lives.

Theme: Lent 2019 – Moved By Grace – Prayer
Scripture: Psalm 27
Liturgy: Rev. Beth Walker
Sunday Message: Rev. Beth Walker

Traditionally David’s Psalm is thought to have two sections. The first section declares the power of God and the boundless hope that God will bring rescue and protection from all enemies. The second portion has a clear shift in tone with the declaration “I believe.” Some scholars contend that it may have originally been two entirely separate Psalms. It is interesting to note how they have been assembled into one. A place of deep curiosity for many is the shift between hope of who God is and believing in God. And we wonder: is this movement a sign of grace?
