From Pastor Michael
Every year we talk about the spiritual disciplines that are at the very heart of Lent. This year, I would like to challenge all of us to practice three disciplines together. All three are forms of sacrifice and selflessness.
Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of injustice,
to undo the thongs of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover them,
and not to hide yourself from your own kin?
We will join Presbyterians across the nation to give generously and sacrificially to the One Great Hour of Sharing offering. This offering supports the Presbyterian Hunger Program, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance efforts and the Self-Development of People. More information on these programs will be included in the Sunday bulletins on each Sunday of Lent.
