Ash Wednesday 2018


Dear friends in Christ, every year at the time of the Christian Passover we celebrate our redemption through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Lent is a time to prepare for this celebration and to renew our life in the paschal mystery. We begin this holy season by remembering our need for repentance, and for the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We begin our journey to Easter with the sign of ashes, an ancient sign, speaking of the frailty and uncertainty of human life, and marking the penitence of the community as a whole. I invite you therefore, in the name of the Lord, to observe a holy Lent by self-examination, penitence, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, and by reading and meditating on the word of God. Let us kneel before our Creator and Redeemer.

Camp: Monday 2012

The lessons for today were: Genesis 1.1-2.4, Psalm 8, and Matthew 5:14-15. Our theme for the summer is: “You are the light of the world.”

This morning we talked about creation and how God created everything, including and especially us.

When I preach with children I use a lot of dialogue; I do my best to make sure that the sense of the conversation is picked up by the mic but please be patient. Thank you.
