1 March 2017 Connecting Church and Community Fairview United Methodist Church Maryville, Tennessee March 5, 2017 March 11, 2017 From the Pastor s Desk Today, "Ash Wednesday" marks the beginning of a new season in the Christian Church. It's the season of Lent (the word literally means "Spring season"), a time the Christian Church has historically focused on "disciplining" the body, mind and spirit through spiritual practices. Along the way that idea evolved into "giving up" something for Lent. Another way of looking at is, "Lent is a time for adopting and practicing the disciplines that would prepare us to receive the mystery of Easter (P. Wilson)." In recent years, the emphasis has been on "taking on" something for Lent, rather than "giving up" something. The writers of "The New Handbook of the Christian Year" have said, "Lent is...taking upon ourselves the intention and the receptivity to God's grace so that we may worthily participate in the mystery of God with us." Oh, we have all but forgotten about "God with us," "Emmanuel," haven't we? And yet Lent calls us back to remember God's plan all along. "Intentionality" and "receptivity to God's grace" become two things to "take upon" ourselves during Lent. What would that look like? It would certainly include: repentance, fellowship, prayer, fasting, meditation on the Scriptures, worship, reflection on the meaning of our baptism, and acts of service to others. Such intentionality becomes the means by which we experience anew God's grace in our lives. We want to help you to prepare in such a way that you do not just leap into the celebration of Easter. We want to help you with the journey to "receive the mystery of Easter." In addition to the special worship services (Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday), we want to encourage you to be in worship each Sunday of Lent as we move through a new sermon series called "Hostage." The goal of this series is to look at some of those wilderness places of our lives where we get stuck, but they are places where God's grace can still find us and transform us. Here's what the next few weeks are going to look like: March 5 "Hostage: Bitterness" Hebrews March 12 "Hostage: Worry" Romans March 19 "Hostage: Addictions" Genesis 4.7 March 26 "Hostage: Anger" Ephesians April 2 "Hostage: Lies" 2 Corinthians I look forward to seeing you as we come together to worship the living God this Sunday. You know what I always say at this point? The beginning of a new series is a great time to invite someone to join you for worship. Who might that be? May God give you the grace to keep a "holy Lent." With my love and prayers, Pastor Mickey
