Jesus asked us to “follow” him. The Christian faith has been characterized as a “journey.” Using these images, we are inviting those who would like to undertake a journey this Lenten season, a journey from the ashes of our mortality on Ash Wednesday to the hope of the risen Christ, to consider what we need to “pack” for this journey. The Ash Wednesday service invites us to undertake certain spiritual practices, such as fasting and prayer, self-examination and repentance, attending to God’s Word. Each Sunday we will look at a different invitation to deep our faith. As we do that, we are also taking an offering of new shoes for Soles4Souls, an international organization dedicated to providing shoes for those in need so they can go to work, to school, to market. Join us. All are welcome!
