"MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
What more haunting words could any person speak than "My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?" How could we endure a moment if our Creator would turn His back and ignore our every plea? Where would we turn for help, comfort, and solace if we could not turn to God?
Sadly there are many moments in life where it seems God has forsaken us. We cry out to God in the midst of illness, financial struggles, unemployment, family problems, yet nothing changes. We wonder if God has heard us-or might He have forsaken us too?
This Lenten season we study those dreadful words coming from the lips of God's only-begotten Son Jesus Christ as He hangs on the cross. But that was not the first time Jesus uttered those words. A thousand years before He spoke those very words through His great ancestor King David. The great psalmist faithfully recorded Jesus' words in the twenty-second psalm. This psalm vividly predicts His bitter sufferings, death, and resurrection. It will be the source of our Lenten devotions as we explore the depths of our Savior's sacrifice for us. (Beginning March 5th)

And so it begins (3-5): our journey to Calvary called Lent. Our 40 days of fasting and contemplation to prepare us for a sober and meaningful observance of Good Friday, and the triumphant joy of Easter to follow. But for now, we put on the purple, put away the Alleluias, and focus all the more closely on our sin and our need for repentance, and for our Savior. This Lenten season our meditations will focus on the hymn: ďLamb of God, Pure and HolyĒ (TLH Page 146) and the different phrases used in that hymn that teach us of Christ.
Lent Service will be on Wednesday evenings @ 7:00. The dates and phrases are as follows;
Ash Wednesday: Pure and Holy
3-12: The Crucified Lamb of God
3-19: The Patient Lamb of God
3-26: The Lowly Lamb of God
4-2: The Lamb of God who Suffers Scorn
4-9: The Lamb of God who Bears Away our Sin

We are looking for people to donate about one Thursday a month to deliver a noon meal to people. You would pick up the food warmer at St. Catherineís, go to Shorehaven, pick up the food and deliver it. There are currently 2 people in our area we deliver. This only takes 1 to 1-1/2 hrs. of your time approximately once a month, and makes such a difference for the people you deliver to.
