God’s gift of forgiveness — Lent/Easter 2012 at St. Mark

Lent didn’t always mean just the reading of the Passion history.  It began as the last dash to confirmation.  In later years, when most people entered the Church through infant Baptism, the focus of Lent shifted to services centered around the passion of Christ.

This year, our Lent, Holy Week, and Easter services will review the Passion and Easter accounts, but they will also hearken back to that time when Lent was about catechetical instruction and reclaim that heritage.  Our sermon texts will be psalms connected to portions of Luther’s Small Catechism explaining what sin has done to mankind, but at the same time also highlighting God’s gift of forgiveness!

 Services are on Wednesdays, 6:30 pm.  Suppers precede services (5:30 pm) until Holy Week.
