Please join us, this Sunday, March 12, as we observe the Third Sunday in Lent. Please remember that Daylight Saving Time begins, and we spring forward, this Sunday. Please set your clocks forward an hour on Saturday night! We’ll have services of Holy Communion at 8 & 10:30am (the latter service will be livestreamed), fellowship time at 9am, and Sunday School at 9:15am. Pam Kalapay will be playing and singing at the 10:30am service.
In Sunday’s Gospel the Samaritan woman asks Jesus for water, an image of our thirst for God. Jesus offers living water, a sign of God’s grace flowing from the waters of baptism. The early church used this Gospel and those of the next two Sundays to deepen baptismal reflection during the final days of preparation before baptism at Easter. As we journey to the resurrection feast, Christ comes among us in word, bath, and meal—offering us the life-giving water of God’s mercy and forgiveness.
