The Worship Committee invites you to step onto the Lenten path this year with the theme:

Wilderness Wandering: Caring for God’s Creation. 

The Pale Blue Dot pins, available now and for the next few weeks referencesthe photograph taken by the Voyager 1 space probe in 1990. Thirty years on, it continues to remind us to care for the only home we’ve ever known. The ‘Pale Blue Dot’ phrase is attributed to astronomer, Carl Sagan who said: ‘it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot.’ 

Throughout the weeks of Lent, as we attend to our inner landscape—walking the road to Jerusalem with Jesus, we invite you to consider the care and keeping of God’s good earth in this time.  

Begonia plants will be offered the first and second weeks of Lent; part of our Caring for God’s Creation theme…you are encouraged to take the plants home to nurture over the next several weeks of Lent and then bring them, in bloom to display on the stage at the Aurora High School, Easter morning. 

*This year’s Lenten study resource, ‘Faithfully Yours: Letters to the Wondering’ is available from https://ucrdstore.ca.

*There are a number of items posted on our AUC website, including, weekly ‘Arts & Faith’ video postings where a classic work of art will be discussed as it relates to the observances we keep in the season of Lent; also, Lenten Reflections and a message for the season of Lent from our Moderator, the Rt. Rev. Richard Bott. The Worship Committee offers blessings to all for a meaningful Lenten Season.
