Lenten Message from the Rector

The Book of Common Prayer includes an outline of our Christian faith as Episcopalians (pages 845-862). It is called the “Catechism.” It is organized as a series of questions and answers. For example, “What is sin?” “Sin is the seeking of our will instead of the will of God, thus distorting our relationship with God, with other people, and with all creation.” (p.848) During Lent, we are invited to overcome our sins by prayer, fasting, and works of love. This is reflected in the image on the front page of our bulletin.

During Lent I invite you to undertake a work of love each day. For example, you might call someone who is lonely, write a letter to a friend, visit an elderly person, give a friend your apple at lunch, invite someone over for coffee or lunch, or send a card to a relative who lives in another city or country. I’m sure you each have lots of wonderful ideas of how you might do something each day for someone else that is a work of love.

Faithfully,

Mother Carol
