On Wednesday, we began the season of Lent.  This season leading up to Easter is an opportunity each year for us to practice our faith more seriously.  During Lent we are called to repent – to turn away from the things that keep us from God and turn instead towards God.  This can be a difficult time – one full of temptation as we struggle to follow God in a more disciplined and intense manner.  It is always….

This year, as we recognize the Transfiguration of the Lord, Pastor Jay Hanke leads worship with the message, Flash! Scripture: 2 Peter 1:16-21; Matthew 17:1-9. This is the final Sunday of the worship theme, The Gifting Continues….

There is a certain “buzz” in the air whenever we are expecting company to arrive.
     There is a busy-ness of preparation,
     a fulfilling of lists to be completed before “they” come,
     a fresh look around to make sure that all is neat and tidy (putting our best foot forward),
     a planned intentionality about welcoming and hospitality, and a counting down of the time until it all begins!

So the term “digging out” seems to be most appropriate for our favorite pastimes this week! How blessed we are to have warm places to live and electricity to give us a sense of normality amidst the storms outside. Although each of us can enumerate the inconveniences we are experiencing, we also can approach each day with a spirit of gratitude for life itself, and especially for Christian community which nurtures and encourages us!  Read more….
