“Intentionally Loving Lent”

Lent begins this year on Valentine’s Day. This means our Ash Wednesday service will be at 6:30pm on Wednesday, February 14 in the sanctuary. While it may seem odd to begin a season of penitence and holiness on a day celebrating love, I would like to suggest we take this opportunity and make ‘Intentionally Loving Lent’ a part of our Lenten experience.

I see ’Intentional Loving Lent’ as an opportunity to dedicate myself to share a minimum of one random act of kindness for a friend/loved one AND one for a stranger everyday of Lent. My invitation to you, is to join me along my ’Intentional Loving Lent’ journey.

Tracking sheets to mark your successes are attached, available at the church, or on our website You can always use your paper or electronic calendar to remind yourself of this daily obligation. How you remind yourself to participate is not important. Celebrating on Easter morning the random acts of kindness we as a community have completed will be rewarding.

Beginning Ash Wednesday, there are 46 days until Easter. This means if each of us loves one friend/loved one and one stranger daily, there are a minimum of 92 times to share kindness. Preparing for the great celebration of God’s great loving gift of a Resurrected Lord and Savior who understands how hard this life really is on a daily basis.

I challenge each of you to invite your family, friends, coworkers, or anyone to be a part of this generous and uplifting experience. We prepare for Easter and all that Jesus has done and will do for each one of us.

In Ministry Together,
Pastor Craig
