Today we kick off our midweek Lenten sermon series. We will focus on the "I Am" statements that Jesus makes in John's Gospel. We will carry these themes into Holy Week as well.
I invite you to join us at Noon or starting at 5:30 for Soup Bread and Pie. These are wonderful opportunities for intentional fellowship! Worship services begin at 12:30 (a brief service) and 7:00 (Holden Evening Prayer). Join us!
This time together is part of what makes Lent very special for me. The pace is slower, more reflective and I often get the chance to really talk with folks. Sunday mornings can be a bit hustle and bustle with all that goes on in and around St. John not to mention trying to get out the door quickly to get a prime seat at Greenwoods.
When I was a kid I never liked leaving home to go these services. It always seemed like such a pain and inevitably I missed one of my favorite TV shows, and we didn't have a VCR much less Tivo back them! Today I wouldn't trade them for the world, there is just something about these 40 days.
Well I hear folks gathering downstairs... its time!
