Last Sunday's Sermon

"A Matter of Perspective"

Today is the first Sunday in the season of Lent. Lent is the 40 day period (not including Sundays) prior to Easter. (It officially began on Ash Wednesday.) This is a solemn season of reflection and introspection and is usually symbolized by intense prayer, fasting and "giving something up". Many years ago it was the season of preparation for new converts prior to their baptism and a time for persons who had become estranged from their worshipping community to be reconciled back into that community. It is a time where we look at ourselves in the mirror and assess the reflection asking the question...."do you see God?"

Reflections:

"Miracles happen not always as we expect.  Jesus loves each of us the way he loved Lazarus.  We can't sit back and wait for a miracle.  We have to act.  our view of things around us is important." - Barb

"The children's sermon reminded all of us that God is a part of all we learn and all the fun things we do!  

Miracles happen every day, expect yours - it is a 'Matter of Perspective.'  It is often in the bible [as] acts that happen every day.

Are we all focused on the big picture and do we miss the small miracles that happen?" - Barry

This Week's Sermon

 "A Matter of Perspective"

This Sunday marks the 2nd Sunday of the season of Lent. Our scripture lesson this week (John 13:1-17) finds Jesus and the disciples at the Passover meal which turned out to be their last one. Then Jesus gets up from the table and washes the feet of the disciple as a reminder of the task to which they have been called.

Gathering around the table used to be a time of sharing and making memories. Now we find ourselves eating in the car, at our desk, in front of a television or some other kind of setting that doesn’t always help our digestion!!!! But memories are still made, sometimes only on those holiday gatherings. How would it change your table gathering and table talk if you knew it would be the last time that you gathered? Join me on Sunday at 9 or 10:30 and let’s talk about “MEALS AND MEMORIES”. ALL are welcome.
