In the Garden

Order of Worship


Dear Friends,


At the Ash Wednesday service, I offered the following invitation to observe a holy Lent. I share it with our whole church family as a guide to living out an intentional Lenten season.


Every year at Easter, we celebrate with joy our

     redemption and renewal through the life, death, and resurrection of

     Jesus Christ.


The season of Lent is a time to prepare for this celebration and to make

   room in our lives for the Spirit of God to renew us in this mystery.


 We begin this holy season by acknowledging our need for repentance and

    our need for the love and forgiveness shown to us in Jesus Christ. I

    invite you, therefore, in the name of Christ, to observe a Holy Lent,

            by self-examination and penitence,

            by prayer and fasting,

            by practicing works of love,

            and by reading and reflecting on God’s Holy  


Let us begin our Lenten journey by together confessing our sins and

     seeking the forgiveness and new life that is promised to us in Christ



Historically, Lent developed as a season of preparing persons for baptism in the church at Easter. The 40 days grew out of this time of preparation for the whole church for the great celebration at Easter. This was also the period when those who had been alienated and lapsed from the church could be reconciled and restored to fellowship. The recovery of the rhythm of preparation and celebration of the Lent-Easter season will revitalize both our congregational worship life and our personal faith journeys.


This Sunday, our texts are Romans 5:12-19 and Genesis 2:4 – 3:24. The title of the sermon is “In the Garden.”


See you Sunday,


Rev. Martha Wingfield

Most often the bag itself is made from a natural fiber or material. Silk satins and velvets are popular choices as are cotton fabrics. Lightweight to moderate leathers can be used for heavier pouches and large replica handbags as well. These can be machine or hand-sewn depending on your equipment, time and skill. Remnant bins at fabric stores or the leather scrap barrel at the craft store is a great place to find a new medicine bag. Or you can find something pre-made.f the medicine bag is larger, like the size of a purse, they can be repositories of bigger items that hold personal power for you or some of your magickal tools.more information at:http://www.cheapsbags.co.uk/category/chanel-replica/.A magic pouch might protect a deck of tarot cards when they aren't being used, or you might assemble a special one that you can wear if you were doing magickal work for manifesting or for healing work.
