Sometimes sin enters our lives because we're not seeing things clearly. We mistake what we think we see for what God wants us to see. Pastor Deb teaches from Isaiah 58:6-12 and helps us to "refocus" with God's vision.
Join us for a special Ash Wednesday service with 32 minutes of worship, a prayer of confession, scripture, a number of favorite hymns, and communion. You may choose to participate, or simply meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me." If you would like to share with us at the table that goes beyond earthly boundaries of time, place, and structure, we ask that you prepare a piece of bread of some type and a drink such as grape juice, wine, or water. As we pray, our prayers extend to where you are. If you are unable to eat or drink, you may want to use a symbolic gesture or mental symbol as you come together at this table of remembrance with us.
