A Note on Lent

During the 40-day season of Lent, the words we sing, say and pray invite us to leave the seemingly safe space of our heads, to unclench our grip on our finite lives and our limited intellect, to step beyond our illusion of control, and to enter the seemly risky space of uncertainty and mystery.

In sum, Lent is an invitation to honest self-examination and to becoming more aware of the attitudes and behaviors that keep us from living the life God gives us in the way God desires of us and as revealed in the life, teachings and example of Christ Jesus.  The word “lent” itself comes from the Old English work len(c)ten, meaning “spring season,” thus, through the stillness and attentiveness we prioritize in this season, we begin seeing more clearly the approaching light of spring and the promise of renewal and resurrection.


Upcoming Dates

April 14 is the last Sunday we will meet for our Lenten book study on Barbara Brown Taylor’s book, Learning to Walk in the Dark.  Meet in the Assembly Room at 9:45am.

Our next Church Work Day is Saturday, April 13 from 10am-1pm.  Join us as we spruce up our space in preparation for Easter. Contact Tracy Bell at 502-645-9563 if you are attending.

Our Palm-Passion Sunday service is April 14.  It is from 11-12am and a joint service with our friends at Eastminster.  Our monthly potluck will follow worship in the dining room.

Our Maundy Thursday service is April 18. Join us for a brief service from 6:30-7:30pm.

Our Easter service is Sunday, April 21. It will be a joint service with Eastminster.  We are collecting donations for Easter lilies and music.  If you would like to make a donation in memory or honor of a loved one, contact Travis Chavis.

Join us for our Lenten book study on Barbara Brown Taylor’s book, Learning to Walk in the Dark. In this book, Taylor explores the breadth of a spirituality that includes darkness. As we journey through the Lent season, we, too, will dive into a more textured spirituality through Taylor’s words, emerging with her at Easter to find new life—even through the dark!  Co-led by Jenny Cook and Meredith Cox, we will meet the next two Sundays at 9:45am in the Assembly Room.
