Our Tuesday 10:00 AM service is cancelled due to icy conditions. At this point we will plan to have Bible Study at 5:00 PM.
Newsletters will be folded and stuffed for mailing following the Noon Ash Wednesday Service on 5 March.
Our Lenten program will be based on a booklet written for Forward Movement Publications by The Rt. Rev’d W. Nicholas Knisely, Bishop of Rhodes Island. Formerly a scientist, Bishop Knisely will take us on a journey through an old and venerable discipline, “Natural Theology.”
The booklet is a series of one or two page reflections on God and creation, with a couple of thought-provoking questions at the end. The reflections are meant to be read one-a-day from Ash Wednesday to the end of Holy Week.
Now, while it is perfectly acceptable to nourish your spirit on your own this way, we think there is some benefit to gathering regularly to share the results of your reflections with other and to see what insights they have gleaned.
To that end there will be four times during each week in Lent where many of us will gather at Emmanuel to share our comments and questions:
- Tuesdays at 6:00 PM
- Wednesdays at Noon (including Noon Day Prayers and a salad luncheon)
- Thursdays at 7:00 PM
- Saturdays at 10:30 AM.
We hope you will make time to join us, enriching your own experience of the readings and learning from each other.
