SUNDAY MARCH 6th from 9:30AM until 10:30AM
Come out and munch on some of Pastor Keith's fresh made beignets while seeing what opportunities are available to take on a Lenten Discipline  - a commitment for the season of Lent to help you grow deeper in your relationship with God.

You see, when I was growing up everyone used to say that they were giving up desserts for Lent
But, more often than not there was no reflection on how God was a part of that discipline. How one's faith could grow deeper through the intentional sacrifice of desserts. It was just something folks figured they should do. 

A Lenten discipline should have three parts to it (I know, how Trinitarian!)
(1) It should involve an action (like praying daily, or reading Scripture or faith journaling or taking a walk with God
(2) It should involve Reflection. Where does God meet me in this action? What is God through this action inviting me to do? How am I through this action drawing more deeply into God's love? And so forth.
(3)  God (of course).
(And if you like four legged stools instead of three you can always add  prayer as a separate thing)

Lent begins ASH WED. So why not join us this Sunday, March 6th, from 9:30AM to 10:30AM and see if any of our ideas stir your thoughts towards taking on a Lenten discipline.

Me? I'll be meeting God in the garden these 40 days of Lent. Look for my reflections in the new and revamped "Reflecting on Our Faith" portion of our worship slip where you, too, can share some insights of your Lenten journey.
