Please keep Eva Scammerhorn, Bonnie Rivers, Aaron Makings, Dawna Schlickleman, Raegan Smith and Brooke Smith in your prayers. They will be received into the Church at the Easter Vigil and they are in the last leg of preparation.
Please ask the Lord to walk with them.
Please keep Bishop Boland and his family in your prayers.
~Symbols of the Journey~
Everyone is invited to participate!
One of the nice things about our Church of St George is that every time we enter our worship space—we have to walk by the Baptismal Font. The Baptismal Font is the place all of us began our journey with Christ. It is by entering into the death and resurrection of Jesus in the life giving waters of Baptism that we are set free from our sins and are given the gift of eternal life. The Baptismal Font is both a tomb and a womb!
Throughout Lent you are invited to bring a symbol that reminds you of “the journey”. This can be an object that reminds you of any physical journey that we take (a compass, a map , a walking stick, a star guide, a rock, a shoe, etc.) or an object which reminds you of our spiritual journey (a Bible, a cross, a medal, a rosary, a candle, etc.). Be as creative as you like!
An then, because the Baptismal Font is the sign of our ultimate journey from death to life: place your symbol at the Font. Then every week, check out the symbols others have placed, pray for your journey and our journey, pray that we might all be on the right path to finding God in our lives.
Lord, by you cross and resurrection, you have set us free!
How will you symbolize your journey to freedom?
Father Matthew's Homilies are also now available for reflection. They are located under Ecommunity.
