The banner hanging in the front of the sanctuary represents the wilderness, reminding us of the forty days that Jesus spent there, fasting and being tempted by the devil.
The palms are for Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. And the purple, the color of royalty is a reference to Christ the King. The variety of purples and the black lettering remind us of the pain, suffering and passion that we remember as we pray during this season. Bordering the banner is the color of white that represents the anticipation of the Easter season.
2015 Lenten Bible Study
The general question will deal with the many and varied fears all of us have as we live out our lives on this earth.
To provide a context for our discussions, we will be using Megan McKenna’s book, The Hour of the Tiger: Facing our Fears. She is an internationally known author, lecturer, retreat leader and spiritual director. Your pastor had the pleasure of hearing her speak at the Awakenings Conference in Holyoke, Massachusetts this past spring.
The remaining four sessions will meet on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 P.M. in the Ladies Parlor on February 24, March 10, March 17, and March 24.
On February 24 we will be looking at Chapters 8, Fear of the Earth, the Weather and the Universe and 9, Fear of God and Fear of Mystery.
See Bill Kneebone if you would like to order the book at the cost of $15. All are welcome to attend in what should prove to be some meaningful discussions.
