  • Lent Is ...

    A Season of the Heart

              Lent is a gift to the Church. In the season, we are invited to prepare ourselves to take in the miracle of the Resurrection. In the early Church, it was set apart for people getting ready to join the Church. Easter was Baptism Day, and you had 40 days to get ready.

              It has always involved surrendering things. We give up things that cloud our view. Most of them are in our heads, in our preoccupations, in our involvement in the world. We clear the way for God to find our hearts, and for us to receive the gift.

              And so, we remove barriers to love. The noises that distract us, the anxieties that consume us, we remove, perhaps one at a time. At the end, our hearts are open, to Maundy Thursday, to Good Friday, to Easter Vigil, to the Day of Resurrection.

              To symbolize this visually, keep your eyes on the floral arrangement in the chancel. Its dark, subtle colors, bespeak the things that cloud our inner vision. They will diminish, slowly, through the season, until the chancel is bare, and our hearts are open. Let this be a prayer window for you, as you move through this holy season.

  • Change of Category Title

    As material comes in that we want to place on our website, we sometimes need to reorganize a bit.  Judy's granddaughter Madison has written a very insightful essay about Alzheimer's, and we wanted to share it here.  In order to do that, we had to find a place for it.  Since we couldn't find a place, we made one.  We have changed "Fellowship" to include "Congregational Life", and that's where you will find Madison's essay.  Thanks, Judy, for sharing this with us.
