As part of our Matthew 25 commitment, we continue using the Blessing Box. Your contributions are welcome. Please fill the Blessing Box or leave items in the narthex.
There are other opportunities to feed our neighbors. The Love Outreach Food Pantry always welcomes contributions and help. We are also exploring how to partner with existing ministries in town. One idea is to help host a weekly meal at the Church of the Nazarene for the elderly. Keep an eye on your bulletins and future newsletters for information to come!
Lent is a season of penitence; a season when we come before God aware that we have sinned and fallen short; a season very near the cross.
This season we will be focusing on the question: Where is God? This is a question I know I have asked before, this is a question I feel most of us, if not all of us, can relate to. Even Jesus uttered the words, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me.” This question is a question of the ages, and it is a question of deep faith.
Because of our deep faith and trust in God, we question why bad things happen, especially to good people. When things happen that seem to go against the notion of a good and loving God, our faith begs the question: Where is God?
This season we will look deeper at stories that beg this same question. We will hear the words of Jesus from the cross. We will come before God with penitence knowing that we fall short, but also knowing that our loving God is there, sometimes we just have to take a different look.
As we walk closer and closer to the cross, we know the story does not end there. We know, even as we ask the question, the answer is right before us. Come, let us walk this Lenten journey together. Let us know where God is. Blessings
