Words About Worship: Welcome to Lent

Lent invites us to consider in deeper, intentional ways our life of faith. Considering the example of Jesus and the way he both wrestled with and lived into his ministry, we now begin a period of reflection and prayer so that we can discover what God is calling us to do and be graced by God to grow in strength and integrity. During worship in this season, we will explore the meaning of covenant through the powerful stories of God’s covenant with the prominent figures of the First Testament. What does covenant mean in your life of faith, and how might the encounters between Noah, Abraham, and others with God in the Hebrew Scriptures encourage our own return to God? Join us each Sunday for “Covenant Reawakened: A Lenten Journey of Return and Renewal.”


In addition to morning worship, Sundays in Lent beginning February 28 we will offer a “Lenten Evening Prayer” at 5 p.m. via Zoom. This is a time to interact and engage with one another around the theme from that morning’s sermon with music, silence, and prayer.


This week I sent an email with the opportunity to receive a star word for 2021. If you missed the email and would like to receive a star word (a spiritually centered word intended to provide focus and meaning for your faith journey), please email me at BethF@plymouth.org. And if you received a star word, I would love to know what it is. Please let me know.


Blessings to you in this season of Lent—and always,

Rev. Beth Hoffman Faeth
