Categories and compartments can be quite helpful. But not always. As we invite you to a Holy Lent – to Pray, Work and Grow in faith – you may see those as three distinct categories. But in fact, they are inseparable, supporting and magnifying each other. When we worship – hearing the Word of God in scripture, offering our prayers and gathered by Jesus in the sacrament of communion – we discover that worship leads to witness in this world; working to bring the kingdom into view, making God’s love both visible and tangible. That work will, in turn, push us (sometimes less gently than we might like) to grow: In faith, in giving, in knowledge and, through it all, in our faith and in our understanding of ourselves and one another. Then will we be led back to God and find ourselves on our knees in prayer.
Three seemingly separate categories; one holy circle. Come join us.
