Welcome to Wondering Wednesday. You are encouraged to use this as personal devotion and reflection. After that, you are welcome to hop on the church Facebook page or Instagram page and wonder with others.
We look forward to your participation at our Joint San Diego UCC Partnership Ash Wednesday service at 6:30 pm on Feb. 22nd. We’ll gather in person at The Table: United Church of Christ of La Mesa (5940 Kelton Ave, La Mesa, CA 91942) and Live on YouTube.
A soup dinner will precede the service at 5:30 pm. Please bring your own bowl and spoon if you can, and extras will be available as well. Come at 5:30 to connect with your Partnership church friends and get to know other UCC’ers throughout San Diego.
The YouTube livestream link can be found here (note: the link will show the livestream a few minutes before 6:30, but will not be accessible earlier in the day). The service bulletin can be found here.
If you are worshipping from home, we invite you into an at-home prayer practice during the time when in-person worshippers will move between prayer stations in the Sanctuary.

Blessings to you as you embark on your Lenten journey!
Some people love to start new adventures, and others approach them with a little more trepidation. No matter how we generally approach such things, there is always a certain degree of anxiety based on the things we do not know and the uncertainties that every new situation presents to us. Think about a time you have undertaken something new.
Take a moment to consider the transformations happening around you.
Did you find yourself spending time “in the wilderness” to prepare?
When has the wilderness been a place of discovery for you?
Pray…We venture forward with tentative steps into your wilderness. As we step forward, make our steps curious and bold. Grant us eyes to see new things, and hearts to feel new feelings. May this venturing forward reward us with adventure as we follow Jesus. Amen.
