Ash Wednesday/Lent begins on March 1, and will be here before we know it. For our Wednesday Lenten gatherings we will use the book, Gifts of the Dark Wood: Seven Blessings for Soulful Skeptics (and Other Wanderers) by Eric Elnes. Cost: $14. Each Wednesday night we‟ll focus on one of the gifts of “the dark wood.” Oooh, aren’t you intrigued by that? The books will available at church in February if you wish to buy one and do some pre-Lent reading.

From Veronica Jacobsen: (SOH Office Manager)
Hello! As we prepare for Lent, this year again we need people to volunteer to
bring soup, bread, and bars for dinner each Wednesday of Lent as well as
on Maundy Thursday. I’m reaching out to you to have you Contact your
committee or team if you’d like to take on bringing in food for one of the
evenings. If you or your group is interested, I’m trying something new– using Signup , Genius to allow people to pick a slot. We’ll see how it goes. The link is

I hear that this was so successful last year we ran out of soup some
nights, so I’m looking forward to seeing how it turns out this year!
