A Note from Pastor Rafe
Next week is Ash Wednesday and we begin the season of Lent. A season of spiritual meditation, learning and growth that develops Christian discipleship. Preparation for Lent includes "cleaning out" of the clutter of life so that we can focus on God. Cleaning out the kitchen to prepare for a season of fasting was part of the historical pattern. Shrove Tuesday came about from cleaning out the kitchen.
Somehow over the years the world has gotten a hold of this pattern of preparation for Lent. Cleaning out clutter to fast and pray so that we can focus on God and grow as Christian followers has become Mardi Gras a time for parties, parades and drinking. Nothing wrong with celebrations but the intention is to clean out not make a mess.
How are you preparing for Lent? What will you take on to help you grow spiritually? Remember Lent is not about giving up chocolate for 40 days but about taking on a spiritual discipline that helps us develop faith and intimacy with our savior. We will be offering a study during Lent called A Disciple's Path. There will be many time options to join a group including Sunday school classes and Wednesday nights. The study is designed to lead us in the path of following Jesus in our uniquely Methodist way. I strongly urge you to take this study and challenge yourself to grow in faith.
Blessings, Pastor Rafe
