Lenten Festival

All are invited to stay after worship for lunch and an opportunity to prepare for the season by creating our own Lent paper chains to guide our spiritual practice throughout the "Breaking the Chains" Lent worship series. 
We got this idea from The SALT Project (a not-for-profit project committed to creating beautiful and theologically interesting church media). The describe the resource here:
"Like the ancient story of the Exodus, Lent is a journey from captivity to freedom. From Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday (not including Sundays, 'mini-Easters' anticipating the big day!), the 40 days of Lent are set aside to help us increase the freedom in our lives. To tell the truth about ourselves and our world, to change our hearts and our ways, and to participate in God's work of breaking chains of injustice, apathy, violence, despair - even the chains of death itself!
'Breaking the Chains' is an engaging, family-friendly, creative Lenten resource, inviting all of us to let words of Scripture and daily practices of liberation be our guides through this mysterious season. Each day, break a link in the paper chain (purple links for the 40 days of Lent, and white links for the seven Sundays) and practice resurrection. Take part in God's chain-breaking, art- making, world-changing grace - all the way to the joyful freedom of Easter morning!"
