Rev. David Tews

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, on March 5th. This Lenten season we will be taking a look at the brokenness in our lives and our world, and then turn that brokenness over to Christ so that we can be restored by Him through the cross. The series we are following is entitled "Restored in Christ" from Creative Communications for the Parish of Fenton, Missouri and is written by Concordia Seminary Professor Joel Biermann. Each service in this very pertinent series focuses on a certain event in the Lenten story and takes a good, hard look at a broken element from that particular story. Coming to an understanding of how each of these broken elements leads to restoration in Christ is key to understanding what it ultimately means to live today as new creations in Christ.

The services are on Wednesday evenings at 5 o'clock followed by a lite supper furnished by the Shepherd's Guild. A free will offering will be taken to help defray expenses. This is an excellent time to invite a friend or neighbor to come along with you. Here is the lineup of services for the six weeks of Lent. Holy Week and Easter Sunday will continue the same theme of "Restored in Christ."

March 5 Ash Wednesday -with Holy Communion
“Broken Hearts Restored” • Joel 2:12-14
Our hearts are broken in sorrow over sin;
Christ restores our hearts through his forgiveness.

March 12 "Broken Vessel Restored” • Mark 14:1-9
A broken vessel holds costly perfume; we are broken vessels
restored when Christ pays the price for us on the cross.

March 19 “Broken Trust Restored” • Matthew 26:14-25
Judas breaks his trust with Jesus by betraying him;
our broken trust is restored through the sacrifice of Christ.

March 26 “Broken Bread Restored” • John 6:48-58
Bread is broken at the Last Supper; we are restored through the Bread of Life, Jesus.

April 5 “Broken Promises Restored” • Matthew 26:69-75
Peter’s broken promises to never deny Jesus are restored
by the surpassing love of Christ.

April 12 “Broken Justice Restored” • 2 Corinthians 5:20-21
A broken justice system put Jesus on the cross; we are
restored when by his death we are declared not guilty.

700 Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
Finish then Thy new creation,
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see Thy great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee,
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heav’n we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before Thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise!
