Life: A Lent Worth Living
What makes for a life worth living and how do we glimpse this more clearly as we focus on the journey of Jesus to the cross and empty tomb? Someone has written that the purpose of Lent is to wake us up to our need for Lent. It is a season to pause and reflect on who we are and who God calls us to become. By focusing on the short but powerful life of Jesus, we remember what our own lives are meant to be. Why did he live? Why did he die? Join us on Ash Wednesday, and Sundays during Lent as we journey together toward Easter Sunday.

Connect from Home During Lent
Join us as we walk the sacred journey through Lent together. Each week during worship, on the communion table you will see not just one chalice but many chalices. It’s a way of remembering that we share one cup of life but we are spread out across the city and nation.

We invite you to find a “chalice” of sorts in your own home — be it a crystal stemmed glass or a pottery mug. Place it somewhere you will see each day. Every Sunday, ask yourself: What makes life worth living? How can I practice that during Lent? Write down whatever comes to mind, and place it in the cup.
