Dear Friends in Christ,
This is Transfiguration Sunday. We are reminded of the amazing moment 3 of the disciples witnessed on the mountain with Jesus as he was changed in front of their eyes. He spoke with Moses and Elijah and God spoke from the cloud. It was a life changing experience. God's glory was on full display. Some moments are like that. We may be completely overcome with God's glory in a special life changing event. Other times, God is present in more subtle ways, but still in meaningful reassurance of his constant love for us. Lent begins this week and it is a perfect time to be on the look out for God sightings however, subtle or stunning they may be. We are blessed to have many wonderful offerings of ways to celebrate Lent and Easter. I've included a calendar of events for you to choose from. Be sure to pick up this year's Lenten Guide as well, it's sure to be a trusted companion for the days leading up to the celebration of Christ's Resurrection. Our back door is open from 7-7 every day. You will find Lenten Guides on the back table in the sanctuary and on the pew next to the back door downstairs. May you find Lent to be a time of meaningful contemplation.
Peace and Love,
