Holden Evening Prayer
Wednesdays in Lent
Join us in our fellowship hall at 6 p.m. for a light supper and conversation, to be followed by a brief prayer service in our sanctuary. “Holden Evening Prayer” was written in 1986 while composer Marty Haugen was the musician-in-residence at Holden Village, a Lutheran retreat center in Washington State. This lovely setting follows the traditional form of vespers while using contemporary and inclusive language.
From Pastor Paul
“In this is love; not that we love God, but that God loves us and sent his Son to save us.” (1 John 4:10)
It’s happening for the very first time since 1945. But it’s going to happen two more times in the next ten years. So, while this is the first time it’s happened during my lifetime, I guess I’d better get used to it.
Ash Wednesday is February 14. The solemn season of Lent begins on Valentine’s Day.
Lent, the six-weeks before Easter, has always been a season associated with penitence and fasting—giving up luxuries and treats like chocolate for a while, and focusing on our faith.
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, a day to ponder the fragility of life and to confess the power that sin still has over us. “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you will return.”
How do we connect that with pink ribbons and chubby cupids?
This year will be a good year to focus on the idea of love during Lent—how much we are loved, and how much we can offer love in return.
Jesus reminds us that we are to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love our neighbor as our self. Ask God to show you new ways that you can demonstrate your love during Lent.
