Journey to the
Cross . . . and Beyond!
The season of Lent is an
opportunity for reflection and "spiritual housecleaning" as
individuals try to identify and remove obstacles to personal closeness with
God. This year our Lenten journey together will
include a new feature:
We are asking that every family contribute a
returned after Easter)
for a display area in our sanctuary lobby. Each cross will be tagged with
its owner's family name, and if a brief explanation of the cross's meaning to
the family is given, that will also be part of the display.
The crosses may be any size, free-standing or
hung, homemade or store-bought, fancy or crude. They may be created from paper,
metal, wood, ceramic materials, thread, or even straws or matchsticks.
Perhaps your family inherited a beautiful,
ornate cross. Or you saved a cross your child once made out of clay or paper in
Vacation Bible School. Or your woodworker relative gave you one as a gift. Or perhaps you've realized that
you don't have a cross displayed in your home, and you're planning on to buy or make a nice one for use now and after Easter.
Even if you can't contribute a cross, please join us for worship each Sunday as we journey together toward a glorious celebration on Resurrection (Easter) Sunday!
