Not by Bread Alone


Jesus turned back temptation with the words:

"Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from God."


Inspired by Jesus' 40-day venture into the desert

where he fasted and prayed while being tested,

early Christians organized a period of preparation

for their observance of the crucifixion.

Today we call this period "Lent."


The 40 days of Lent begin with Ash Wednesday and end at Palm Sunday,

when the week of Jesus' crucifixion - the week we call "Holy Week" - begins.


Jesus' cross is the place where God's love unfolds for us in its deepest form.

Lent provides a special opportunity to reflect on that love

in a thoughtful, contemplative time of spiritual renewal.

Some people find some form of fasting or self denial helpful.

Some choose other spiritual "disciplines" such as a daily prayer or meditation.

There are many possibilities.


As we gather for worship on the Sundays in Lent,

you're invited to join us each week as we turn to the Bible as well as

to both traditional and contemporary church music

and seek renewal together,

traveling with Jesus on his journey to the cross.
