Lent and Easter 2018

TheGospelofLuke

You are invited to join folks across the Episcopal Church in daily Bible reading during Lent and Easter. The Good Book Club provides a short daily scripture reading through Sunday, May 20.

On Sundays, we will gather from 9:10 a.m. to 9:50 a.m. in between the two services to check-in about the readings and explore one passage in greater depth. A listing of the daily readings is available in the narthex.

LentMadness

For the ninth year running, people worldwide are gearing up for Lent Madness, the "saintly smackdown" in which thirty-two saints do battle to win the coveted Golden Halo. Calling itself the world's most popular online Lenten devotion, Lent Madness brings together cut-throat competition, the lives of the saints, humor, and the chance to see how God works in the lives of women and men across all walks of life. Here's how it works: on the weekdays of Lent, information is posted at www.lentmadness.org about two different saints. Each pairing remains open for 24 hours as participants read about and then vote to determine which saint moves on to the next round. Sixteen saints make it to the Round of the Saintly Sixteen; eight advance to the Round of the Elate Eight; four make it to the Faithful Four; two to the Championship; and the winner is awarded the Golden Halo. The first round consists of basic biographical information about each of the 32 saints. Things get a bit more interesting in the subsequent rounds as we offer quotes and quirks, explore legends, and even move into the area of saintly kitsch. This year Lent Madness features an intriguing slate of saints ancient and modern, Biblical and ecclesiastical. 2018 heavyweights include John the Evangelist, Margaret of Scotland, John Wesley, Katharina von Bora, and the apostles Peter and Paul. Check the tournament chart in the Parish Hall each Sunday to see who is advancing!
