Inviting the Spirit: Lent 2015 Opportunities
Since October your Spiritual Life Committee has been planning to encourage the contemplative/spiritual life of our congregation during the Season of Lent.
Here are some meaningful opportunities to look forward to:
Spiritual Life invites FBC members and friends to join them in attending an Ash Wednesday Worship with Saint Peter’s Church at Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church, on Wednesday, February 18th, 7:30 PM. This ancient ritual, with the placing of ashes on the forehead, is a powerful reminder to be humble before God who is the source of all that is good, lasting and true. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the forty-day season of Lent.
A Self Guided Weekday Meditation, created by Marty Lincoln, in the FBC sanctuary will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 18th, and run through Good Friday, April 3rd. The display will be open from 9:00 AM –4:00 PM each day, Monday – Friday, and each Sunday morning before and after worship. Stop by during your week as your schedule allows and enjoy several interactive meditation stations. We are inspired by Isaiah the prophet: “Listen and your soul will live”.
Homegrown Lenten Devotional: Spiritual Life is developing a devotional that responds to one or both of the following questions: ‘When have you sensed God’s presence?’ and/or ‘When have you responded to God’s presence in your life?’ Deadline for submissions is Sunday, February 8th. Devotionals to be given out beginning on Sunday, February 22nd, the First Sunday of Lent.
