The following is a message from Bishop Eaton that I found helpful and wanted to share.

Gods Peace

Pastor Curt~

Children of God in this wilderness,

Like the children of Israel, we find ourselves in the wilderness wondering when it will end. We can easily feel isolated and anxious, like this will never end, frustrated with the timetable that leads to promise, and wondering if God is here. But I assure you God is faithful, always present through any wilderness, working to transform us for His final future.

Inflation. Threats of war. Covid.  At one point we thought it be gone by the summer of 2020.

These are uncertain times of change and captivity from the normal, approaching 2 years now.

Historically God’s people were in slavery for 400 years, captivity for 70 years, and in the wilderness 40 years. Lent  means springtime, a time of pruning, change, and transformation towards new life. 

 

As we enter into the wilderness of Lent, may God grant us courage to wrestle with who we are and who we are becoming in Christ. May God free us from distractions through the disciplines of prayer, fasting, and giving as we move through the pain and sacrifice of the cross, to the victory of the resurrection, so that we might bear much fruit here at St. Timothy for God’s glory.

 

Preparing for Lent and increasing our trust in God together…

During Lent we focus on Jesus’ journey to the cross and resurrection.

Our communal 40 day observance of Lent parallels Jesus being led by the Spirit in the wilderness for 40 days. There Satan tempted him: to claim power, to be sensational, to take matters into his own hands and trust and worship something other than God. Jesus resists temptation by being obedient to the word of God. A good example to follow for the practice of our Lenten disciplines.

Lent is a time to intentionally re-examine what it means to follow Jesus. To challenge ourselves to disciplines that lead to actions of trust and increase our growth in Christ. 

Together we call a fast from things that keep us from putting Jesus first in our lives.

We give to those in need who cross our path, as a sign of our hope in the coming kingdom of God and to develop a heart that trusts God more than the things of this world, believing God is faithful to provide for us.

We pray for guidance, strength, and to increase our dependency on God, teaching our hearts to trust God’s wisdom rather than our own understanding.

Worship provides opportunities to increase all of these disciplines.

Ash Wednesday is March 2nd.  We will gather for the imposition of ashes, a sign of our mortality and our passing sinful nature, and the cross, a sign of our need for mercy and God’s gracious and promised salvation. We will resume mid-week worship of prayer and contemplation around the cross every Thursday in Lent at 11am and 7pm, beginning March 10.  Our worship will also be available for viewing online.

 

May we remember that God is at work in our hardship even when we cannot see, just as God has been throughout history in difficult times, transforming us into God’s future kingdom glory.

So therefore, “we also celebrate in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance proven character, and proven character hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:3-5

May God give us peace and courage to trust Him completely in the wilderness, as we head towards God’s fulfilled promise.
