Lent – Holy Vessels: Healing & Wholeness
The Lenten Season invites us to live an Easter life – living as if death has no hold on us. Each of us is created a precious vessel of God's love. Each of us has experienced hurt in some way, bringing a sense of brokenness. To move toward healing is to offer the gift of life and wholeness (or wholi-ness), not only for ourselves but also for others as we come to see each person as a holy vessel, and as we come to desire that wholeness for all of creation. The image of a vessel in the form of beautiful glass containers and broken glass in the form of tumbled beach glass are visual metaphors for the season. You are invited to bring your own glass vessel to grace our worship center.

Our Lenten study (March 5 – April 16) is
Animate: FAITH. This adult course imaginatively explores central topics of Christianity. In each session, we watch
a video featuring a leading voice from the Christian faith, spend time on personal reflection and journaling, and share ideas with the group.
Each session delves into a faith topic: God, religion, Jesus, salvation, the cross, the Bible, and church.
Wednesdays at 6:30 - soup and study at the parsonage. Register with the office (study journals are $14). Or choose the Sunday option beginning March 9 at 8:40 a.m. in the parlor.
Adults meet in the St. Marie Parlor most Sunday mornings during the school year to engage contemporary Christian issues and traditions.
