A Lenten Invitation

Our five Wednesdays of Lent will include dramas based on Jesus’ best known parable, “The Prodigal Son”. It is a message for all to hear that, “the only way home, the only way to finding a place at the table, is to recognize and accept the lavish,
reckless and abundant love of a prodigal God.” Each Sunday in Lent will focus on the five covenants God makes in the Old Testament lessons and how we can use these covenants as lenses through which to view baptism. The baptismal covenant is made with us individually but the new life we are given in baptism is for the sake of the whole world. Come and hear again that you are a child of God and you are loved and that God is with you always.
