Lent is a season of “spiritual gardening,” of asking God to unearth in us what lies fallow, what needs to be tended, and what needs to die for new life to emerge.
CULTIVATE: to prepare and use for the raising of crops; to foster the growth; to improve by labor, care, or study; to refine; to further; to encourage.
We will explore this theme in Sunday & Monday worship, and on Lenten Wednesdays with Soup Suppers at 6:00 pm, and Worship at 7:00 pm.
