Midweek News – Feb 17


Something purple, a candle, salt, coins, shoes, a cup, a pillow, a towel, and a carry-sack.

Those were the items for our ‘at-home Lenten scavenger hunt’ that followed our ZOOM Pancake Supper.  Each of those items relates to a part of our Lenten journey – travelling with Jesus towards Jerusalem.  Please send us a note if you want explanation!

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.  Yesterday we sent a link to the Vimeo International Ash Wednesday Service with TMUC and our friends in the Uniting Church of Australia.  Today there is another opportunity for you to be in a wider community worship.

Tonight at 7:00 is the Regional Ash Wednesday Service on ZOOM.

Here is the invitation:

Join us for liturgy, covenanting with Communities of Faith, and small group conversation. Offered by your friendly Committee on Community of Faith Support. All welcome!

Prepare ashes in advance for your own use. Safely experiment to find what works for you. A candle wick or wooden match burned till the (cooled) tip crumbles between your fingers may work.  100% cotton scraps burn to a good ash.  So would a previous year’s palm crosses if you have them. To help the ash adhere, use a small drop of cooking oil, or moisten your finger on a pad of oily paper towel.

And here is the link for tonight at 7:

And, of course, the TMUC Community is invited to a conversational ZOOM on Thursday morning at 9:00.

We look forward to seeing you again!
