Greetings to you in the name of our brother Jesus and our God who loves us beyond measure.
As I write this it is 45 degrees outside and the birds are chirping through my open office window. While I know more snow is likely headed our way, I am filled with gratitude for this respite from the cold and darkness of winter. It is impossible to not feel grateful for this gift. It fills my soul.
Perhaps that is what we most want. To be full. To be full of God’s love and grace. To be full of hope for ourselves, our loved ones, this congregation. To be full of gratitude for all the ways we are already blessed. To be full of faith in our future together. To be full to the brim.
This Lent we are invited into a radically different Lent. As the enclosed lenten devotional suggests, Lent is an invitation to a more full life, to be authentically who we are, to counter scarcity at every turn, to pour out more grace wherever it is needed. And this is an invitation that extends past Sunday worship. To support you and your family in your own sacred time during Lent, we have enclosed a Full to the Brim devotional providing prayer, poetry, art and reflections designed to strengthen and stretch you, shaping you into a more faithful disciple.
In addition, we hope you and your family will join us on Wednesday evenings for a Full to the Brim worship experience. It will be so good to be together midweek again. More information on these midweek services can be found in this mailing.
I pray you answer this radical lenten invitation with a few hours for you and God each week so that when Easter does come again, you are ready to cry out “Hallelujah” for the ways God has filled you beyond measure during Lent (and on that note, you will find also enclosed an envelope through which you may support in memoriam, lilies for the sanctuary on Easter Sunday).
This Lent, may you trust fully that you belong to God. May you increase your capacity to receive and give grace. May you discover the expansive life God dreams for you.
