Wednesdays in Lent

On Wednesday evenings in Lent, we are offering a catered meal at the church at 6 p.m. for $3 per person. We got off to a great start last night with a wonderful turnout, good food, and great conversation.

The who gave up meat for Lent were in great shape as their were ways to stick with veggies.

But those who gave up sweets for Lent had a tougher evening as we had some cookies and then birthday cake for my wife, Victoria's, birthday.

The evening continued with me teaching about the beginnings of the religious Reformation in England in the mid 1500s. Then we experienced worship using the 1549 Book of Common Prayer.

Next week we will have soup, salad and bread for a meal and then we'll discover what a difference a few years can make in worshipping with the prayer book of 1552, which was much more reformed in character. This way of learning about history through worshipping with the words those before us used is a very experiential way to gain insight into their times and the words of our own worship services today.

Come join us next Wednesday.

The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
