THIS SUNDAY, February 17th
Rev. Katherine Lovkay leads our service with her
talk, titled: "Holy Shift"
Lent, the 40 days of preparation for Easter, begins in 2 1/2 weeks already! (Ash Wednesday is March 6 this year.) As children, many of us fasted from candy, movies, or other treats as a discipline during the 40 days (Sundays don't count) from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.
More recently, we learned to "fast" from destructive habits like procrastination, and "feast" on virtues like compassion during Lent.
How would you most benefit from this period of dedicated spiritual preparation this year? What would actually help you make the Holy Shift from "I am a body-mind-personality being" to "I am a spiritual being whose nature is eternal life"? Would it be facing a particular fear? Making an appointment you've been putting off? Revising or reviving your prayer-meditation-study routine? Upgrading your self-talk? Let's look at some possibilities this Sunday, so Lent will truly make a difference for you this year.
Love and Blessings,Katherine Lovkay, Minister
