The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. (Psalm 51:17).

Soon we will find ourselves journeying into the season of Lent, a season where we will be called to consider where God is leading us and how we might learn to follow Christ more closely. On February 14, we celebrate Ash Wednesday, a service that reminds us that “from dust we have come and to dust we will return.” We will be challenged to look deeply at our own broken hearts and will be reminded of a God whose own heart breaks for us and who came to bind up the brokenhearted.

Join us on Wednesday, February 14 in the Chapel at 6:15 for a service of worship where we will experience the presence of God in the ash and the dirt, in our voices joined together in praise and prayer, in the faces of fellow travelers and the embrace of friends.
