A Time of Prayer

Listening for Divine Sparks in our Midst

February: Pray

“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.”

Psalm 1 – emphasizing the importance of avoiding the ways of the wicked and finding delight in the teachings of the Lord.

The Sacred Journey of the Lenten Season

Introduction

Lent signifies a solemn 40-day period preceding Easter. Commencing on Ash Wednesday and concluding on Holy Saturday, Lent is characterized by fasting, prayer, and repentance as believers prepare for the celebration of Easter Sunday. This season of reflection and self-discipline involves practices such as abstaining from certain indulgences, fostering a deeper spiritual connection, and commemorating the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Ash Wednesday

The Lenten Season commences with Ash Wednesday, a day of reflection and repentance. On this day, Christians attend a solemn service where ashes are applied to their foreheads in the shape of a cross. The ashes symbolize mortality and penance, reminding believers of their dependence on God and the need for spiritual renewal.

Ashes to go 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. at the main door

Service: 7.00 p.m. In-Person Only (You may opt to have ashes applied during the service)

Service of the Passion (Palm Sunday)

Palm Sunday marks Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey as crowds laid palm branches at his feet, shouting “Hosanna.” This day signifies the beginning of Holy Week and serves as a reminder of the fickle nature of human allegiance. The palms, blessed during the service, are often taken home by worshippers as a symbol of victory and peace.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, where Jesus shared a meal with his disciples before his crucifixion. The term “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word “mandatum,” meaning commandment, referring to Jesus’ commandment to love one another. During this poignant service, Christians reflect on the significance of communion and Jesus’ act of washing his disciples’ feet as a gesture of humility and service.

Silent Prayer Vigil

The vigil typically spans the time between Maundy Thursday evening and Good Friday morning. During this vigil, participants engage in a period of silent prayer and reflection. The purpose of the vigil is to foster a deep spiritual connection with the profound moments of the Passion of Christ and to prepare oneself for the joyous celebration of Easter Sunday.

Good Friday

Good Friday is a day of solemn reflection on the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Christians around the world observe this day with prayer, repentance, and contemplation of the immense sacrifice made for humanity’s redemption. Church services often include the Stations of the Cross, a devotional practice retracing Jesus’ steps to Calvary. The Good Friday liturgy emphasizes the deep sorrow of the crucifixion but also acknowledges the hope that lies in the promise of resurrection.

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The day begins with joyful Easter services, often held at sunrise, symbolizing the emergence of light after darkness. The Resurrection represents victory over sin and death, offering hope and redemption to believers. Many Easter traditions involve the sharing of meals, the ringing of bells, and the decoration of churches with lilies, symbolizing purity and new life.

Conclusion

The Lenten Season is a sacred journey that traverses through Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday, ultimately leading to the triumphant celebration of Easter Sunday. Each day holds its own significance, contributing to the profound narrative of Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection. As Christians worldwide participate in these observances, they reflect on the core tenets of their faith and the transformative power of God’s love.
