GOD’S HOUSE – YOUR HOME

Ash Wednesday is behind us, and we have entered the season of Lent with the call to repentance and to return to the Lord. The sign of ashes we received suggests our human frailty and mortality and reminds us of our need for God’s grace every day.
Throughout the season of Lent we will focus on the theme “Making Change”. Change is a constant in our lives. Although we may want to avoid it, it simply cannot be avoided. How we handle change will impact the kind of life we will live.
The Sunday gospel lessons in Lent all feature people faced with the challenge of change. Beginning with Jesus, who is tempted to change negatively, then continuing with Nicodemus, the Samaritan woman at the well, the man born blind, and Lazarus – all have opportunity to have their lives changed by God’s power.
The Wednesday evening services will each have us think about a specific kind of change we all face from time to time. These 30 – 45 minute services begin at 7:00pm and are designed to be a kind of spiritual oasis for our busy lives. They will serve to remind us that no matter what kind of changes we may be facing, God’s steadfast love always accompanies us and guides us through the changes that come. *

This week’s gospel tells of Jesus’ temptation in the desert. His forty days in the wilderness become the basis of our 40 day Lenten pilgrimage. This year we will be thinking about how God is with us during the many changes of life. This lesson provides insight into when not to change, as Jesus holds firm and stands against satan’s temptations.
Join us as we consider how Jesus was tempted and the strategy he used to overcome the power of the devil!
On March 16th we will hold a Congregational Meeting to approve the update to the OSLC Constitution. Click here to view the old constitution, model constitution and proposed constitution. Viewing them online will save a lot of paper! Thank you!
