Westminister Chimes - February 2015
Dear Friends in Christ,
I know it is hard to believe, but Lent begins on Wednesday, February 18th. We shall begin our season with the Ash Wednesday worship service at 11:30 am with a light luncheon that will follow in the Fellowship Hall. We again mark this date and our own penance with the sign of the cross with ashes on the forehead.
Lent is a period of forty days prior to Easter, excluding Sundays. In the early Church it was a period of intense study and preparation prior to the celebration and one’s entrance into the Church on Easter Eve.
Differing traditions have developed over the centuries. Some of these included fasting, omission of some pleasure, or the eating of fish on Fridays. In our day and age, within the Protestant Church, we stress a greater devotion to Christ and His Church. It is to be a period of growth and renewal.
I would like to encourage each of you to be intentional in asking others to join you for our worship services, Bible Studies or other special events. I believe that our congregation is making a difference in our community and it is because of you.
See you in worship!
