All are welcome to gather with our friends from Temple Mt. Sinai at the Greenery (750 Sunland Park Dr.) to eat, drink and discuss topics related to faith, God and life.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season when God calls us to reflect on the meaning of Christ’s death and resurrection. The imposition of ashes – when you receive ashes in the sign of the cross on your forehead – sets the tone for Lent. Each moment you encounter your reflection, your ashes are a striking reminder that “you are dust, and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19b). But the cross, a symbol of Jesus’ crucifixion, offers hope.
During the season of Lent, the six weeks leading up to Easter, all are invited to gather together on Wednesday evenings for a simple supper of soup, salad and bread and a contemplative prayer service.
6:00 p.m. Supper of soup, salad, bread and conversation
6:45 p.m. Prayer Around the Cross with candles, readings, song, prayer and silence
