    • On the Sundays of Lent this year we are engaging “The Seven Deadly Sins.” Desert “Father” and monastic theologian Evagrius of Pontus is credited with first drawing up a list of “offenses and wicked human passions,” but in the late 6th century, Pope Gregory the Great modified the list and ranked them based on the degree to which they “offended against love.” This morning’s “offense” is GLUTTONY
    • Today, most of us associate GLUTTONY almost exclusively with food. In many cases, however, GLUTTONY has nothing to do with food. GLUTTONY is the urge to overindulge in anything. And because a glutton can never get enough to fully enjoy, the indulgence ends up killing the very pleasure it seeks. It kills the soul first, and sometimes the body follows.
    • GLUTTONY should be considered not only as it affects individual lives, but as it affects nations and even the world. For example, demand for beef in the United States is so high that people in South America are clearing away rainforest. Early Christians weren’t as concerned with “eating too much and dying.” They were far more troubled by the internal toll gluttony takes on the soul, and the external toll gluttony takes on the society when large numbers of people succumb to consuming too much.
    • Use these moments before the ringing of the bell to greet your neighbor and consider: How does this morning’s “offense” negatively affect my life and the life of others?

  • PRAYER OF CONFESSION
    • Merciful God, we confess the folly of our sin and the hypocrisy of our complaints. We grumble about the evils of our world, even as we commit injustices and profit through deceit. 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…

      What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
