Midweek Lenten Ministry
Lent 2020 in the UPG Parish,
side by side with St. John’s Windish
Join us Wednesdays in Lent…
…as we prepare to live in the fullness of Christ’s Death and Resurrection! March 4, 11, 18, 25 and April 1 at Noon – 12: 45 PM and 6:00 – 6:50 PM. Each gathering begins with a light soup, salad, and bread supper.
Lent has traditionally been a time of spiritual preparation for Easter, the glorious celebration of Christ’s resurrection! This Lent our UPG will be providing additional resources for study of God’s word, meditation, and prayer that can lead us to personal and corporate renewal in faith, hope, and love. Our Lenten focus this year is based on the theme verse:
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2: 20
The Scripture focus for each week will be available the previous week through paper handouts and is also available online. There will be a focus verse or verses you can meditate on the entire week, as well as additional readings that you may want to read each day. There will also be a questions or challenges each week for you to consider. You can find this material on our Blog. When you get to the main blog page, you can click on "Lent 2020" to separate these posts from the others.
When we gather on Wednesdays, each table will discuss the readings over supper. However, if you cannot attend, you can participate in Spirit through reading, meditating and praying at home. An interactive blog will be available.
It is our hope that everyone will gather in Spirit in one way or the other, as we all seek to grasp more fully the meaning of Jesus’ crucifixion and the glorious power of his resurrection for each of us personally, as members of the UPG, and as a citizens of God’s beautiful world!
