Lenten Midweek Worship
Thursdays at 6:30 PM
Holden Evening Prayer in person
“God Blesses the Lives We Actually Have”
During Lent we’ll gather at church on Thursday evenings to sing Holden Evening Prayer by candlelight—please join us in person (Zoom is unavailable). The pastors will share reflections on the theme, “God Blesses the Lives We Actually Have.” Based on a new book by Kate Bowler and Jessica Richie, we claim the promise that Jesus will walk with us through whatever kind of Lenten day we are having. Practicing spiritual honesty, we bless the days we actually have, while longing for the future God promised when there will be no tears or pain. We hope and pray to understand that our actual days—pain-filled, lovely, ordinary, garbage—are blessed. March 23: Blessed are those who feel alone
