40 DAYS WITH JESUS

Throughout March, worship will focus on 40 Days with Jesus. We will look at the familiar stories of Lent through the eyes of the different participants: John the Baptist, Simon Peter, the Widow, Nicodemus, and other disciples. This haunting story has themes of betrayal, humility, pride, cowardice, power and so much more. As we explore the characters, we begin to see pieces of ourselves in these ancient words. Come join us on the journey of 40 Days with Jesus.

Let’s Party – Vamos a divertirnos

Join us this Sunday February 15th for our annual Mardi Gras Celebration Service.  Our celebration will take place during the 9:45 am service.  Please wear your royal purple, bright green and gold to the celebration.  

Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday, in French is celebrated as the final day of Carnival.  Carnival celebrations begin on or after Epiphany and ends at midnight the day before Lent. This period of time is dotted with celebrations until Lent begins.  Many internet sites suggest that the name Fat Tuesday originated from the consumption of foods high in eggs, milk and fat.  These were foods were typically removed from the diet along with meat and celebrations for the duration of Lent.  The period of Lent ends with the celebration of the resurrection of Christ.

Fat Tuesday is also known as or Shrove Tuesday.  “To shrive someone, in old-fashioned English (he shrives, he shrove, he has shriven or he shrives, he shrived, he has shrived), is to hear his acknowledgement of his sins, to assure him of God’s forgiveness, and to give him appropriate spiritual advice.” (http://elvis.rowan.edu/~kilroy/jek/LITCAL/ShroveTuesday.html)

“On Shrove Tuesday, many Christians make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth they especially need to ask God’s help in dealing with. Often they consult on these matters with a spiritual counselor, or receive shrift.”  (http://elvis.rowan.edu/~kilroy/jek/LITCAL/ShroveTuesday.html)

Se celebran el último día de carnaval Mardi Gras o el martes gordo, en francés. Las fiestas de carnaval comienzan en o después de la Epifanía y termina a la medianoche el día antes de la Cuaresma. Este período de tiempo está salpicado de celebraciones hasta que comienza la Cuaresma. Muchos sitios de internet sugieren que el nombre de grasa el martes proviene del consumo de alimentos altos en grasa, la leche y los huevos. Estos fueron los alimentos típicamente fueron removidos de la dieta con carne y celebraciones para la duración de la Cuaresma. El período de la Cuaresma finaliza con la celebración de la resurrección de Cristo.

También es conocido como o grasa el martes Shrove el martes. “A alguien, en inglés anticuado shrive (él shrives, él shrove, él ha confesarse o él shrives, él hombre, él ha hombre), es oír su reconocimiento de sus pecados, para asegurarle el perdón de Dios y para darle consejo espiritual apropiado.” (http://elvis.rowan.edu/~kilroy/jek/LITCAL/ShroveTuesday.html)

“El martes de carnaval, muchos cristianos hacen un punto especial de autoexamen, de considerar qué males tienen que arrepentirse y qué enmiendas de vida o las áreas de crecimiento espiritual que necesitan especialmente para pedir la ayuda de Dios en el trato con. A menudo ellos con sobre estos asuntos con un consejero espiritual o reciban confesión.” (http://elvis.rowan.edu/~kilroy/jek/LITCAL/ShroveTuesday.html)
