A Message from Rev. Maya Landell
What a week we’ve had. So many prayers to be shared: grief at the death of Gloria Myles; prayers for people in our community and loved ones, including Dale Pringle as he fights a lung infection in the hospital; prayers for those affected by the coronavirus; prayers for families and children, teachers and negotiators as the rolling strike continues; prayers for the leaders of our church community as they work on the GIST transition process, strategic plan, staffing needs, Leap Year on Broadway, and so much more.
It’s hard to believe it will be LENT before we know it, just a few weeks until Shrove (Pancake) Tuesday. Please get your tickets after church on Sunday. The supper will be followed by the Ashes Eve service that will lead us into 40 days of Lenten prayer. Stay tuned for more Lenten invitations.
This week, the prophet Jeremiah speaks into our community from Chapter 17: The Kingdom Falls. Check out the video synopsis here:
Jeremiah is often called the weeping prophet because he laments what has happened around him. When life is hard we join him. By the rivers of Babylon we hang our harps and cry. These words of the prophet Isaiah speak into every situation in our lives. May these words be our prayer today.
The above words of the prophet Isaiah speak into every situation in our lives. May these words be our prayer today.
