Pastor's Latest Sermon!
Surely Not I?
Tonight we begin our 6 week, 40 day, walk to the cross. It is a walk that the pilgrims of the church have been doing for centuries. It ends in Holy Week and those dramatic Three Days of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday . . . and then in the glorious eruption of Easter. The colors have changed. Lent has begun. The liturgy tonight is different. We have been marked with ashes in the sign of the cross and reminded that we are dust and to dust we shall return. Everything about this evening is intended to jolt us, get us out of our comfort zone and remind us that for the next 40 days during these Lenten mid-week services we will be focused on the greatest story ever told.
