This first Sunday of Lent (3/6), we begin our Lenten series titled “Lighten Up: The Joyful Truth About Sin and Grace.” In worship together, we will explore what our tradition has taught about both sin and grace and we will explore how these theological ideas really work in our lives, at the level of our own bodies and spirits. While “sin” sounds like a heavy theme (and there is no disputing the damage it does), sin in the Christian tradition is always seen in the light of grace.
Rev. Lewicki will preach, exploring–and demonstrating–the major biblical metaphors for sin. Things will get stained, and crushed, the mark will be missed, and someone will end up in debt. We will have a Word in Worship for our kids, so we hope kids and their parents will be in worship. We will all share the sacrament of Communion together.
Throughout Lent, we will be assisted by the incorporation of puppets in our worship services. Puppetry is an ancient art form that helps us tell powerful stories about “big ideas” like sin and grace.
