February has been a slog. Between the last three weeks of rainy Sundays and the flu’s grip on many in our congregation, it has been a while since we have been together, full force, in worship. But Lent is the ideal time for recommitment to seek God through worship and other spiritual practices which reorient us to Christ.
This Sunday marks our first Sunday of Lent, and the launch of our series, Embodied: Psalms for Every Part of Us. We begin in a logical spot for bright, cerebral Presbyterians . . . with an exploration of how we might dedicate our minds to God in fresh ways. We are made to know God in every part of us, to celebrate God with all of who we are. Join us this Sunday, as we begin thinking about what it might look like for us to turn to God with the petition: Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. (v. 4)
I’m excited about the beautiful and contemplative worship we’ve crafted for this season and pray you will be fed and that God will be glorified as we sing Psalms each week, as we contemplate how we “Love to tell the story”, and as we settle into fresh rhythms of seeking God with every part of us – our minds, hearts, souls, and bodies.
I pray that your Lent may refresh your commitment to Christ and your trust in God’s great love. And I give thanks that we get to be on this journey together.
