When Jesus went into the wilderness to be tested, he went with few resources. He did not eat or drink for 40 days. He prayed. He breathed. He hungered. He thirsted. He prayed some more. Later his disciples would ask him to teach them to pray and Jesus would give them his prayer, what we call The Lord’s Prayer. Much of Jesus’ journey can be summed up in the words of this prayer. During the six Sundays in Lent, we will be revisiting the words of this prayer, and praying some prayers of our own making.
If you’re able to be with us in person, you are invited to write some of your own prayers on the purple paper provided and place them, rolled up, in the cross in the Sanctuary. If you are unable to be with us in person, but would like to send a prayer for the cross, please contact the Church Office at 704-334-3771 to have paper sent to you for this purpose. This cross will be moved on Easter morning, to receive fresh flowers and life, as a visual sign and message to the world of how God makes all things new.
