EPWORTH: a United Methodist Church - First Sunday in Lent (Year B) Welcome to the First Sunday in Lent! Once again we are given the opportunity to journey through the Scriptures and reflect on God's call in our lives to look for new direction. This morning we welcome as our guest preacher Elliot Wright. Elliot is a frequent attendee here at Epworth and he helped facilitate our Dream Team gatherings. He has also been part of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) for over forty years. In that capacity, he has traveled to mission spots all over the world. He calls us to consider Lent not as a time for "giving up" trivial things but for adding important attitudes and action that reflect the journey of Jesus on the road to Jerusalem. Throughout Lent the Sanctuary will be open giving us the opportunity to journey on the labyrinth. This ancient meditative practice gives us the opportunity to experience in body as well as in Spirit, the presence of God in our lives. May you be blessed in your journey this week ... you are a blessing!
