First Trinity E-News
This is going to be a fantastic week. We have Transfiguration + Burning Palms + Burying Alleluia, Beer and Hymns, Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Catechemmunity.
We'll also be releasing the First Trinity Community Lenten Devotional. The devotional will be available on our blog, or pick up a copy on Sunday, Ash Wednesday.
The Sundays after Epiphany began with Jesus' baptism and end with three disciples' vision of his transfiguration. In Mark's story of Jesus' baptism, apparently only Jesus sees the Spirit descending and hears the words from heaven. But now Jesus' three closest friends hear the same words naming him God's beloved son. As believers, Paul writes, we are enabled to see the God-light in Jesus' face, because the same God who created light in the first place has shone in our hearts to give us that vision. The light of God's glory in Jesus has enlightened us through baptism and shines in us also for others to see.
Readings: 2 Kings 2:1-12, Psalm 50:1-6, 2 Corinthians 4:3-6, Mark 9:2-9
Ashes Will be imposed in the Community Center Green Chapel.
