Wednesday Lenten Service, February 21, 5:30 pm – “In the Beginning”

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 5:30 p.m. – “In the Beginning” – From Pastor Amy – Just as the creator God forms the earth out of chaotic waters and shines light onto primeval darkness, so too, our baptism into Christ’s resurrection pulls us from death into fruitful life with all the good earth and enlightens our life in Christ. The service begins with the Evening Prayer liturgy from ELW. Luther students Katy Roets and Diamond Jenkins will read James Weldon Johnson’s poem “The Creation” from his “God’s Trombones: Seven Negro Sermons in Verse,” 1927. An electronic version of this work with original illustrations is available here (“The Creation” begins on page 17):  

A Simple Soup Supper, provided and served by members, follows the service.
