Dear Friends: 

Our sermon series, “Half-Truths” is coming to an end this week with the theme, “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin.” Sounds a little ominous and challenging in a changing world, so how do we do that? Read Matthew 7:1-5 to see what Jesus had to say about this and consider how we live out his teachings in our post-modern world.

February 26th at 6:30 p.m. is Ash Wednesday. We begin the season of Lent. Perhaps you are clearing out your home of all the bad influences and devoting yourself to a season of prayer and self-denial, or maybe a good practice of silent meditation and prayer would enhance your spiritual self. We will begin a series called, “Finding God” and resourcing Richard Rohr’s book, ‘Silent Compassion.’ If you would like a copy please let me know. Maybe a group of us can meet to discuss and observe a holy Lent together.

See you on Sunday,
Pastor Mark
