Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church

Dear Faith Community,

Lent is a season of the Christian Calendar with two foci. The beginning of the season emphasizes the foci of the human condition. We look at ourselves and acknowledge our sin and need for forgiveness. We pray:

“Have mercy on me, O God,
   according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercy
   blot out my transgressions. 
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
   and cleanse me from my sin.”   Psalm 51:1-2

The second foci of Lent is Jesus Christ and the practical meaning of his death and resurrection. God’s love for the world is on full display in Jesus (see John 3:16-17). The
consequences and depth of that love are revealed in Jesus’ death on the cross. In Ephesians 2:8-10 The Apostle Paul describes what God has done in Jesus Christ and he gives a glimpse of how we are to respond:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God- not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”

Part of the second foci of Lent is about how we respond to this amazing grace. Lent is a time for Christians to give thanks for what God has done for us by renewing our commitment to following Christ in the world.

Our Wesleyan tradition provides a practical guide for responding to the gift of salvation. The General Rule of Discipleship is like a compass that points us toward Christ and the “good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”

To witness to Jesus Christ in the world
and to follow his teachings through acts of
c
ompassion, justice, worship, and devotion
under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

I suggest we use the General Rule as our guide for keeping a holy Lent, which begins Ash Wednesday, March 6. Join your Trinity faith community as we continue to journey through this meaningful season of contemplation and worship now through Easter.

Peace,
Pastor Steve
