  • From the Pastor...

           Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the first day of Spring (the Vernal Equinox) (this is actually a simplification of the formula).  Why do I mention that?  Well, this means that Easter (and thus Ash Wednesday, Pentecost, etc.) moves around within a 33 to 34 day window from year to year.  And this year it falls quite early – March 27th.  (It will be 19 years before it falls earlier – 2035 – and 141 years before it hits this date again - 2157).
                Practically, that means that THIS Wednesday is Ash Wednesday!!  Lent is upon us!!!  I have heard people say that it feels like we just got through Christmas and we are diving into Lent.  But I encourage us to rejoice in the gift of this season.
                I have come to love Lent.  Yes, it is a season of penitence – feeling sorry for our sins and the ways we fall short of who we might be.  But I find myself, as I consider my own sinfulness, coming up against a “wave” of God’s love that washes away my guilt so that my sorrow becomes a mere memory in the light of God’s love for me in his son, Jesus. 
                There truly is a grace to this season!  I find myself able to do things and be more disciplined during Lent than I can ever be any other time of year.  And this is a “discipline” (like the word disciple which comes from the Latin discipulus, meaning student or learner) helps me learn how to be more like the person I truly want to be (God wants me to be that person as well!)
                I hope we can take advantage of some of the things being offered so that this will be a meaningful and spiritually rich time for us all.
