Wild places are sometimes places we do not choose to visit. Certainly, they are places where we do not have very much control. Weather, terrain, and wild life can surprise and shake us, or send us into a sudden sense of awe and beauty.

Early in Jesus’ ministry, he spent 40 days in the wilderness, and we draw on that story to shape our Lenten season in 2015. We invite you into a time of reflection, wondering, prayer and worship that is different from other times of the year. The Church’s Season of Lent is a 40-day period of time often set aside to let go of old habits, or personal comforts, and/or to try on new habits as a way of deepening a relationship with God.

We improve our batting average, piano playing, and even cooking through practice. Doing something again and again leads to changed or new habits. Here are several opportunities and tools to devote time to your relationship with God this Lent.

You are invited to worship and choose one or more of these practices to help shape a Lent of intention and faithfulness.

Rev. Bonnie Wilcox and Rev. Amanda Simons, Pastors
