We invite you to deepen your journey with Christ during the holy season of Lent
In addition to the very meaningful services of Ash Wednesday, the Sundays of Lent, and of Holy Week, we will be offering Taizé worship on all Sundays of Lent, at 7pm in the Chapel. Taizé worship focuses on meditative prayer, singing, Scripture, and silence to tune our spirits to the presence of God. All are invited.
Our complete Calendar for Lent and Holy Week can be found here.
Thoughts from Rev. AnaThe Book of Acts tells us that the first community of believers in Christ helped one another in an open and organized way. “No one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common.” It’s something that just flowed from their faith in Christ and their experience with the life-giving Spirit.
Today, some might think that this is too radical, or too simplistic. But we should not miss the central point. The source of their sharing was their communion with God, and the recognition that they belonged together. Sharing with one another was a natural outgrowth.
In these times of economic hardship for so many, it’s very striking that these believers practiced an alternative economy of mutual support. People have debated whether or not this is a model for all times, but we should not overlook the spiritual conviction behind this practice: Those Christians believed that hearts that say, “Everyone for him or herself!” have the capacity to be transformed into hearts that become generous by the Spirit of God.
Join me in praying for generous hearts. Let’s be rich in God, and rich in supporting one another in the church and in the world.
En la paz de Cristo,
