LISTENING FOR LENT

Over these many months of pandemic life, our community has clung to music to bring us joy, offer us solace, hold us together, and keep us rooted in our faith. It seems right, then, that our Lenten observance this year would follow the soundtrack of this liturgical season.  What better way is there to observe the season of Lent than to listen deeply for it?

Our Minister of Music, Dr. Frank Glass, has selected 9 notable hymns of Lent to guide our reflection. The hymns and their wisdom will provide a frame for our Wednesday night vespers, Sunday worship services, daily devotionals,  and personal meditations. May this time be one of deep listening and learning as we walk towards the cross and the what is beyond it.

SHROVE TUESDAY

BYOP! Never fear, friends. Just because we can’t gather in the parsonage for our traditional pancake supper, that doesn’t mean we’re going to forgo the carbs and connection the day offers us. Make your pancakes and join us on Zoom at 6pm for dinner and some breakout room rotations of fun. Wear your best Mardi Gras outfit for the occasion!
