With snow cancelling services the last two weeks, Lent is hardly off to a good start. Nonetheless we will make the best of it. As the winter weather continues, don’t forget to look here for updates and announcements about schedule changes.
Here is what we have in store for 2015.
Lent Programs — “Why do we recite the Nicene Creed (almost) every Sunday?”
We offer the same program three times each week: Tuesdays at 6:00 PM, Wednesdays at
- Week of 9 March: We believe in Homoousia, not in Homoiousia!
- Week of 16 March: We believe in the Holy Spirit, not in Ecstatic Prophets!
- Week of 23 March: We believe in the Church, not in Secret Handshakes!
Lent Worship — Just so that we pay more attention to the Nicene Creed on Sunday mornings, we’re moving it.
At 8:00 AM services, we are moving the creed from after the Sermon to after the Gospel, before the Sermon. (If you worshiped in an Episcopal Church before 1976, you will remember it there!)
At 10:00 AM and at Noon, the Creed will move each week! You’ll have a chance to think about what it contributes at different moments of our liturgy.
Join the fun of Lent Madness. Go to lentmadness.org for more information and to vote every day for your favorite saints. First round voting continues this week and next.
Maker and lover of all creation, you endued Molly Brant with the gifts of justice and loyalty, and made her a wise and prudent clan mother in the household of the Mohawk nation: Draw us also toward the goal of our faith, that we may at last attain the full dignity of our nature in our true native land, where with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
