What a hard week for our city. As we grapple in the aftermath of the explosion, please keep in prayer your fellow Pilgrims who have be directly impacted by this week’s events as their businesses, homes, and schools were in the surrounding area. Daily schedules and rhythms have been altered due to ongoing efforts, keeping open the shock and pain of Wednesday morning.
I am grateful that we were able to host our final Lenten session Wednesday evening with Imam Waheed. What a deeply connection we have had this season with him. How wonderful that we now have the opportunity to support this nascent community of faith under the Imam’s prayerful guidance.
Thank you all who gathered to Crop walk last Sunday! We had a great group, and I lost count, as more and more Pilgrims showed up to do our part to eradicate food insecurity around our world. What a glorious day to walk our city.
Sunday marks our entry into Holy Week. Beyond our special Palm/Passion storytelling, i pray you will join us Thursday, 6pm for our Maundy Thursday service. Last week, I invited you to carve our time on Good Friday to prayerfully walk our labyrinth as a spiritual discipline for this day, and hope you do so. Sunday, April 21, we have a morning full of worshipful events with a “sunrise” (8am) service at the labyrinth, followed by a pancake breakfast, and then our Easter service at 10:30am. My prayer is the collection of these worship experiences help us to culminate our Lenten journey in alleluia.
