On Wednesday evenings beginning March 6th(Ash Wednesday), you are invited to come for supper in the upper lobby at 5:30p.m.  At about 6:20 p.m. we will have a brief service of evening prayer, and following that watch and discuss a new video series called,

Entering the Passion of Jesus; a Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week”.


Each week, Dr. Amy Jill Levine, a scripture scholar and teacher, will take us into the unfolding story of the last days of Jesus’ life.  On Ash Wednesday (yes, there will be ashes for those who want to receive them), the focus will be on Jesus Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem.

The schedule for the next five weeksis as follows:

March 13th– The Temple Incident

March 20th– The Anointing of Jesus and the Role of Women

March 27th– Jesus’ Teachings in the Temple

April 3rd      – The Last Supper Traditions

April 10th    – Gethsemane


Each episode, whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been through more Holy Weeks than you care to count, will provide rich food for thought as well as for prayerful reflection.  And the meals are always wonderful!
