Conversations and the cross

Beginning with Ash Wednesday, March 9, everyone is invited to participate in the Wednesday evening Lenten services.

Each evening begins with a soup and sandwich dinner at 5:45 p.m., followed by a worship service at 7 p.m. This year's sermon series is called Conversations on the Way to the Cross.

In all of your conversations today, you probably didn't think about the fact that all your banter, chats, and discussions were actually conversations on the way to the cross. As Christians, we're constantly travelling to the cross that is smack dab in the middle of our lives -- the cross that shows us our sins and our Savior who continually converses with us as He speaks through His Word and we respond with our prayers. Every conversation from heaven or to heaven passes through the cross. Go and be refreshed and reminded of the importance of Christ's cross -- His life, death, and resurrection -- within the center of our lives.
