Feb. 24: All-In Sunday
When you come to church on Sunday, you will again see a big purple cloth hanging from our worship space. This cloth is one way we will mark Lent as a distinct season within the year. This cloth symbolizes the long journey to Jerusalem Jesus makes in Luke’s gospel. He literally “sets his face” towards Jerusalem, even though he knows the suffering that awaits him there. This Sunday, you will also find a pathway weaving throughout our worship space. We commit ourselves to walking this path with Jesus. We commit ourselves to staying the course with him, witnessing his life, his death, and his resurrection. We commit to learning from his courage and compassion as he presses on towards Jerusalem.
Readings: Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18, Psalm 27,Â PhilippiansÂ 3:17-4:1, Luke 13:31-35
