We Are One in the Spirit

Sunday is the first Sunday of Lent, a season of lengthening light and preparation. We begin by reflecting on the baptism of Jesus by John in the Jordan. Indeed, this is a season of “repentance” or “returning” to center. What will we lay down and leave behind? What transformation lies ahead, just out of sight? Let’s be mindful, and consider these things in our hearts, minds and bodies. We are bundled into our homes in these dangerously cold weeks, still, the Base Camp of our church community is warm. Let’s gather and keep the gift of Sabbath. We’ll sing and pray; reflect, refuel, and refresh our sense of reverence.
