This is an early “Mardi Gras” edition of the eweekly to remind you of our Ash Wednesday service tomorrow, Wednesday, February 17, at 7 pm. We are coming together with 5 churches to have an experience we wouldn’t have had in our individual groups. Lent is better together!
I’m also doing a special Lenten prayer group on Tuesdays at 6 to 6:45 pm, starting February 23. A time to check in and a time for prayer, focusing on our prayer lives and these questions: What resurrections are you preparing for? What new life do you seek? This is especially for people who are using the daily Lent of Liberation prayer booklets. I mailed them directly to people who requested them, and Amazon promised a Thursday delivery to you. I also ordered some directly to my house, which I will bring to church. Please let me know if you want one.
Let’s begin this Lenten journey together tomorrow night. Just as joy comes in the morning, so Easter (and the promise of a new beginning) is right around the corner. Let’s prepare as a community! Enjoy a treat today (pancakes? I’m doing keto waffles with sugar-free syrup) on this last day before Lent begins.
Happy Mardi Gras!
Rev. Jim Mitulski
