Sunday Worship – March 11, 2018

    • Unlike the Christmas season with all its parties, running around, buying presents, baking cookies, and decorating, the season of Lent is a slower time, a time of reflection, self-examination, and commitment. The traditional forty days of Lent offer people a chance to focus on how to live a more Christian life.
    • Use these moments before the ringing of the bell to greet your neighbor and consider: How might you live a more Christian life?

 

  • where to buy modafinil reddit The Way, Ann Weems (from “Kneeling in Jerusalem”)
    • O God, I’ve only just begun and already I feel I’ve lost my way. Surely this is not the road and surely these are not the ones to travel with me. This Lenten journey calls for holy retreat, for reflection and repentance.
    • Instead of holiness the highway is crammed with the cacophony of chaos. Is there no back road to Jerusalem? No quiet path where angels tend to weary travelers? No sanctuary from the noise of the world? Can this hectic highway be the highway to heaven?

We fret about the scarcity of resources while hoarding earth’s goods and cheating the poor. We protest the problems of our world, but we do not actively work to address them. Expose our sins in the light of your grace. Heal us and free us from our foolish ways that we may know the joy of eternal life in Jesus Christ. In his name, hear our silent prayers of return … (a time of silence for personal confession)
