LENT 2019

LIVING OUR BAPTISM...Six Streams of Discipleship

 

This Lenten Season, we will be using Richard Foster’s book “Streams of Living Water” to help us explore six ways that we live into our baptism (I encourage you to read this book).  Jesus embodied all six “streams of living water.” Since we are baptized in Christ, streams of living water flow from him into us, and from us into the world around us. As we worship together this Lent, you will notice an ongoing focus on the importance of our baptism.  You are invited to embrace the way that Jesus’ living water flows through you.

The Sunday Lectionary  is a three-year cycle of weekly readings.   This lectionary is built around the seasons of the Church Year. During most of the year, the lections are: a reading from the Old Testament, a Psalm, a reading from the Epistles, and a Gospel reading. 

 

The  Daily Lectionary expands the range of biblical reading in worship and personal devotion. These readings complement the Sunday readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship.
