Our guiding theme this Lent comes to us from the prophet Isaiah. Through Isaiah’s revelation, we learn God’s desire for us to fast from all that oppresses God’s creation and separates us from God’s justice and love. We receive further instruction to invest our whole selves into the work of divine construction, actively responding to the needs of our neighbors and this world. It is then, as Isaiah explains, that…
“The Lord will guide you continually
and satisfy your needs in parched places
and make your bones strong,
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water
whose waters never fail.
Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt;
you shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
you shall be called the repairer of the breach,
the restorer of streets to live in.”

Join us for an in-person and livestreamed service on YouTube. Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent: a time set apart; a holy time; a time to evaluate ourselves and be transformed by Christ’s love. To begin such a journey, we’ll gather together to reflect, receive ashes, pray, and sing. Tonight’s service is in collaboration with Church of the Village.
