Enjoy your journey through the garden each week. The Synod of CNOB has put out a wonderful interactive online resource for the Season of Lent. Each week of Lent there will be items in the Lenten Garden to unlock a collection of bible readings, videoed stories, crafts, music, and other garden adventures for our congregation. Both Hugh and Courtney have contributed to the resource.
Start by clicking on the bible on the park bench. With one click you will open up a collection of daily bible readings, children’s bible story readings, prayers, and questions to think about throughout each week. Once you’ve got these devotions at hand, go ahead and click around the rest of the garden to discover so much more.
Each of the itty-bitty library boxes behind the park bench unlock one or two video recordings of a wonderful bible story read by a church leader. The hanging flower basket will take you on a weekly adventure of garden musings and ideas with Kristine O’Brien, an avid gardener and thoughtful minister. The guitar leaning against the tree sings out a brand new or much-loved hymn or song that will connect you to our weekly bible stories and themes.
Are you feeling like going for a walk? Click on the wooden door and walk into a world of labyrinth visits, reflections, and finger labyrinth opportunities. Is it time to be creative? The garden gnome reveals a simple craft idea that makes use of materials that you likely already have at home. And when it’s time for something to eat, click on the picnic basket for a new recipe or two to try out at home. The garden will change, so be sure to check it out each week!

ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE on YouTube begins at 7:30am | Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of our forty day Lenten journey. On this day we are reminded of our human mortality and our need for reconciliation with God. Truly dust we are, and to dust we shall return. Lent is a time of turning around and beginning again. Join us for this intimate service of worship. If you have ashes at home, we invite you to have them ready for use during the imposition of ashes the service, if not, you may use olive oil or make the sign of the cross with your bare finger.
