Reflection

Everyone knows about Mardi Gras.
Many have traveled to celebrate in New Orleans.
But did you know that it has connection to the church?
That it happens on the day before Ash Wednesday – the start of Lent – each year?

In worship, we will explore the meaning behind the traditions of
Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday.
And we’ll take some time to ready ourselves for the start of Lent.

 

This week…
Consider what you know about Mardi Gras and Lent.
Prayerfully consider what you might give up and/or take on this Lent in preparation to celebrate Easter.
Mark your calendar for Ash Wednesday Worship.
7 pm on February 14th

Pray
We thank you God that you are with us when we celebrate.
We thank you God that you are with us when we pray and fast and give in secret.
Be with us and guide us through this day and this season.
Amen.
