Spring Greetings~

As most of you know, this year’s Lenten Theme is: Back to the Garden.  And, as part of last Sunday’s service, we each chose one “fast” (positive action) and one way to “get back to the garden” (rest and restore).  We posted our choices on a Tree of Life, which is now in front of the fireplace in the parlor.  I encourage you to ask one another over the next few weeks: “How is your fast?”  “Have you gotten back to the garden?”

Here is a portion of Sunday’s reading from the Prophet Isaiah (adapted from The Message):

This is the kind of fast I’m after:
   to break the chains of injustice,
   get rid of exploitation in the workplace,
   free the oppressed,
   cancel debts. CONTINUE READING

I said that evangelism is hard for churches like ours, in part because we might have bad cultural or political associations with evangelicals, and in part because we might not like talking about personal things with strangers.
