FROM THE DESK OF PASTOR MIKE
Grace and Peace,
Invitation to the Observance of Lenten Discipline
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
The early Christians observed with great devotion. The days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church that before the Easter celebration, there should be a forty-day season of spiritual preparation. During this season, reminds us of our faith, and Holy Baptism. It was also a time when persons who had committed serious sins, and had separated themselves from the community of faith, were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness, and restored to participation in the life of the Church. In this way the whole congregation was reminded of the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and the need we all have to renew our faith.
I invite you, therefore, in the name of Jesus, to observe a Holy Lent: Take the time to reflect on the Lord and make a quality decision to get know Him better. In order to accomplish this goal, it is done by seeking and pursuing Him, by self-examination, repentance, by prayer, fasting, self-denial, and by reading and meditating on God’s Holy Word. Let us also take the time to rededicate our lives to Him, and then be- come better doers of His word, acting on it, obeying it, and Him on what He has said!
