 crocusA Message from Rev. Kenneth Gray

This year the first of March marks the start of Lent, a 40 day period which ends on the day before Easter.

In some churches it is an important part of their tradition, in others like ours it is something which we know about and which some people choose to participate.

It is probably best remembered in the idea of giving something up for lent. If my circle of friends is typical then that usually means giving up chocolate!!!

Lent is meant to remember the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry when he went into the wilderness for 40 days and spent the time in prayer and Bible reading.  There is never a bad time to spend more time in prayer and Bible reading!!

It is also a period of time which marks the beginning of Spring with the promise of new life and hopefully better weather!!!

Once again we plan to decorate a cross with flowers on Easter Sunday, this is a day when we celebrate that what was an instrument of death is in fact a place of life when we discover Jesus.

Whether we are giving something up for Lent lets resolve to open ourselves to Jesus.
