Our Lenten Adventure

This is your personal invitation to participate in the story of the Christ Life through Lent. We will begin that story on Ash Wednesday, March 1st, in a 5:00 pm service in the Chapel. The Lord will be introduced as the greatest storyteller the world has ever known because of the way he wove together in his stories the themes of heaven and the themes of earth. The anointing of ashes will be available for any and all who want to be marked as People of the Story. Then on each Sunday in Lent I will feature one of his favorite stories - stories I have come to believe he told about you and me, stories in which he put himself into the story to show how he is relating to each of us, stories in which he shows us how we are reacting to his amazing life among us. I have prepared a series of monologues for Sunday worship through which these parables will be told. You will hear the story of the Good Samaritan as told by the Samaritan; and then on successive Sundays you will hear from our four Gospel writers: Matthew the historian, John the evangelist, Luke the poet, and Mark the mystic. Their stories will bring us to Palm Sunday when the greatest storyteller of all times becomes the leading figure in the greatest drama ever lived. I invite you now to let this storytelling journey through Lent be the story of your life with Christ. Come to worship with your curiosity and your faith, with all of the sacred memories of your life and all of the visions you cherish of evermore.
~David
