What's Happening...


What is Lent?
Lent is another form of pilgrimage. It is an interior sacred journey toward Easter. It invites us into a sacred time. The season of Lent is meant to help us become even more the persons of God that we were created to be.

As I wrote in my cover article for the February Bellringer, pilgrims make their journey with a sense of heightened expectation. As we travel the days of Lent beginning with Ash Wednesday, February 18, we have an opportunity to be deliberate and aware…

During Lent contemporary Christians generally intensify their spiritual life, like a retreat in daily life. Many read the Bible more, pray and meditate more, give up something enjoyable, attend a study group, attend more (weekday) services at church, and give more generously to worthy causes.

The church does not use “Alleluia” in worship during Lent, nor do we have flowers on the Altar. There is sparseness and a starkness, to help orient us to what truly matters in life. When Alleluias and flowers return on Easter Sunday their reintroduction gives the Easter Season extra potency.
Enter your Lenten pilgrimage with expectation as you embrace the transforming grace of God.

With love and care for you all, Mo. Paula
