From the Rector: What’s Lent Got to Do With It?

Dear Friends in Christ—


I have been writing a lot in the last month about community—about its gifts, its healing power, its urgency.


As we move into Lent, I want to ask a more basic question: what, exactly, is our community



Our Lenten Series is meant to address this question. Called “Journeying Together,” the series is
designed to give us an experience of being in community. We’ve changed the tradition a little.
It’s on Wednesday evenings now, and the sessions are a little bit earlier and shorter to allow
families with young children and those who don’t like to be out late to participate:

  • 6:00-6:30 dinner
  • 6:30-7:10 activities
  • 7:15-7:30 sung compline


I hope that it will be an opportunity, after so much separation, for connection. And I hope that
we will see faces we have been missing.


The series also gives us a chance to reflect on what community means. The evenings will
include a series of conversations and bible study on the theme of “Journeying Together.” Our
leaders all work towards justice in this world. They bring different perspectives on what
“together” might include and how to broaden our idea of the word. They remind us that our
true community as Christians is not only within Grace Church, but also outside our walls. Our
true community is the whole of the human family.


Much of the series will be accessible to those who prefer to remain at home. The conversations
will be held in the Saint Mark Room, so that outside participants can join in via Zoom. Compline
will be live-streamed.


I encourage you to come for as many of the evenings as you can. We need each other right now.


Yours in Christ,
