Lent, which begins with Ash Wednesday, March 6th, is a wonderful opportunity to refocus, to de-clutter, and to simplify your life. Our Ash Wednesday Day of Prayer, our worship services during Lent, and our group studies will teach you how. The season’s theme is inspired by Paula Huston’s book, “Simplifying the Soul: Lenten Practices to Renew Your Spirit.” The book is deeply spiritual and very practical. It integrates hands-on practices for every day with Biblical wisdom in our faith tradition. A brief meditation per day ties it all together. You can acquire the book in the church office for $6/used copy or $14/new book. If that is too expensive for you, contribute what you can. Get engaged to the level that is good and meaningful to you: Join us for the Ash Wednesday Day of Prayer on March 6, participate in our Sunday worship services in March and April, and/or read the book like a devotional for the season, and/or join one of our small study groups for 5-6 weeks. The whole season is meant to help you simplify your soul and your life. Think of it as Marie Kondo for your soul. With questions, please contact the church office or Pastor Dietmar.
