Lent starts with our Ash Wednesday service on Feb 25th: 7:30pm at the church.
From Feb 26 until April 3, we will have opportunities for corporate prayer each day of the week, Monday-Friday. The times will vary by day, but will be the same every week (for example: every Monday at 8:30pm, every Tuesday at noon, etc).
One of the great traditions of the church is a schedule of fixed prayer. Although there have been as many as 9 ‘offices’ each day, we use 4 daily offices: morning, noon, evening, and compline (prayers before bed). During this season of Lent, we are inviting folks in our community to add the spiritual discipline of corporate prayer at fixed times. Imagine adding a regular 30 minutes of quiet, meditative prayer to your week for 40 days. How would this choice slow you down? How would it bring calm? How would it facilitate a sense of solidarity with others who are seeking to draw near to God in this season? Speaking from my experience, I know we are rushed, frantic, and often lonely. Here is a chance to deliberately swing the other way to relaxed, peaceful, and accompanied by friends.
Prayers will be facilitated by a leader and last 30 minutes. I invite (even challenge!) you to choose at least one day of the week and commit to that corporate prayer time at the church for the season of Lent. See you there.
