Weekly Calendar

The Journey through Lent

Most of us will approach Lent thinking of what we can give up as a means of fasting these next few weeks before Easter.  Some of us will be more intentional about praying and reading God’s Word and other spiritual materials.  Some people will do nothing.  They will continue living their lives not being impacted by Lent one way or the other.

 I love this time in the Church calendar.  I love the slower pace, the contemplative nature of Lent, and the internal prodding of the Spirit.  This year, the beginning of Lent is taking place during the winter months, when most of our nation is cold and barren.  This winter has been particularly hard on many communities, especially the New England corridor where it continues to be hammered with record-breaking snow storms.  Despite the weather, we are still discovering ways of seeking God’s face, acknowledging forgiveness of sins, grateful for God’s pardon, and embracing each other as brother and sister.

 As we journey through Lent, this might be an intentional time to examine your faithfulness to God and Tabernacle’s ministry.  God is delighted when we worship and celebrate the presence of God in our lives.
