Lent Begins February 18
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper – Join your parish family for a pancake supper on Tuesday evening, February 17, from 5:30 – 7:00 pm in the Parish Hall. Pancakes and sausage are the traditional fare for this day because fat, butter and eggs were forbidden during the Lenten fast. There is no charge for the Pancake Supper, but donations are gratefully accepted and will go to Beacon Ministries.
Ash Wednesday Services – The Holy Eucharist and Imposition of Ashes will be offered at 9:30 am and 7:00 pm on February 18. These are joint services with St. Mark Lutheran Church. If you wish, bring any palm leaves you may have to the church by February 15, and we will burn them.
Stations of the Cross – St. Mark Lutheran, St. Luke’s Roman Catholic, and St. George’s Episcopal Churches pray the Stations of the Cross together each Friday in Lent during the noon hour, beginning at 12:10 pm. This year they take place at St. George’s. Everyone is welcome to take part in this quiet, meditative service.
Lenten Soup Suppers & Program
“Is the Church in Need of Reform?” Father Dale will lead the program as we explore some of the ideas being put forward in the midst of the theological, doctrinal, political and cultural tumult in the church. Using the writings and views of various leaders, we will consider several proposals.
The schedule for our discussion is:
February 26: Believe the Bible/Get Hit by the Spirit!
George Barna and Dennis Bennett – Evangelical and charismatic challenges to the church.
March 5: Obey the Pope!
Pope Benedict XVI – The Roman Catholic call to obedience.
March 12: Why Christianity Must Change or Die!
John Shelby Spong and Donald Miller – Non-traditional and secularist thinking.
March 19: Quit Being Schizophrenic Christians!
Alexander Schmemann – The Eastern Orthodox Call to Worship.
March 26: Is the Holy Spirit an Underachiever?
William Abraham and William Willimon – The Holy Spirit is reforming the church.
The evening begins with a simple supper of soup, salad and bread at 6:00 pm in the Parish Hall. There is no cost, but participants are asked to contribute what they would otherwise have spent for dinner. Proceeds will go to Beacon Ministries. The program will begin at 6:45, and our evening concludes at 8:00 pm.
