The Sermon Series for Lent is "Holy Vessels" and the starting point stems form the understanding of "penance" as a process of healing that which s been hurt. This comes from the Eastern Orthodox Church and from this perspective, Lent is a journey to Easter that is more about learning about and preparing to "live the Easter life." To move towards healing is to offer the gift of love and wholeness. As we begin to see others as Holy Vessels, we can come to desire that wholeness for all creation. We invite you to join us on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am or 10:50 am.
