Thursday, February 25

Online Bible Study

 

The Lenten Study will be at our usual study times: Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. 

All are welcome.

 

This week, we will be studying Luke 1:5-38.

 

During the Season of Lent, we will be studying the book entitled Blessed Is She: Living Lent with Mary", written by Tim Perry.  You can order the book from Amazon (Used copies available at considerably reduced prices.) or at any store, if you desire.

 

Everyone is happy to see Mary in the crčche at Christmastime, but by the time the Magi head back East after the Feast of the Epiphany, Christians of many traditions are often ready to place Mary to the side, too.

But in "Blessed Is She", Timothy Perry presents a Mary who belongs in Lent as much as in Advent, who shows what it means to die and live with the crucified and risen Jesus.  Drawing primarily from the Gospel of Luke, this lovely book of devotions sketches a Lenten Mary who teaches us about being disciples. The result is a complex, inviting, strong character a disciple to be emulated by all Christians, especially during this holy season.

What is Taizé?

 

Taizé is the style of Christian worship practiced by the ecumenical Taizé community in France, characterized by the repetitive singing of simple harmonized tunes, interspersed with readings, prayers, and periods of silence.

 

One of our congregations, Hope Lutheran Church in Forest Hills, has a long tradition of offering this meaningful, contemplative type of worship service monthly.  Also, in the past, PLUM has had a Taizé joint worship service.

 

Whether you are someone who is new to Taizé, or someone who already appreciates this beautiful way to connect to God, community and self, please consider joining us. All are welcome!

 

 

 

Saturday, March 13

Paschal Candle Collection

 

By Saturday, March 13, all PLUM churches should have their Paschal candles ready, with the numbers "2021" on them, and enough candle length remaining for 1) the Candle Blessing service and 2) the Easter season services.

 

If you don't have the correct numbers to make "2021", please take a close-up photo of the numbers on your candle and send the photo to Pastor Brenda (brenda.henry@gmail.com); she will try to match or replace your current numbers.

 

Pastor John will collect the candles from the 11 PLUM churches on Saturday, March 13.  We will hold a Candle Blessing service and then the candles will be returned back to the churches in time for Easter Sunday.
