Beginning our Journey into Lent

Hey Everyone,

I hope this short post finds you all well as we enter the lenten season. Even though it’s just begun, I feel I’ve been experiencing a bit of a lenten journey myself over the past five weeks. Without question, I have a newfound respect and admiration for those of you who have travelled down these paths before me. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate your prayers and support during this season.

The light is growing brighter at the end of the tunnel and we’re planning on leaving early next week. This means that I’ll be away from the pulpit for one more week. Fortunately, I’m blessed with an incredible colleague in Lake City and a stellar team of elders. Many, many thanks to Lyn Lampert for filling in for me, and also much gratitude for CPC elders for making sure things run smoothly while I’m away.

This Sunday, February 18th will be the first Sunday of Lent, during which we’ll begin Christ’s journey toward the cross. This week, we turn to the Gospel of Mark, as he narrates the wilderness temptation. If you haven’t read the passage in sometime, I’d encourage you to read the lectionary texts for this week, which can be found at the end of the downloadable online Order of Worship below.
