Lent is a season used by some for reflection and/or self-improvement. This year, Lent begins on Valentine’s Day with Easter falling on April Fools’ Day. Doesn’t life sometimes feel like a combination of those holidays? One moment all is right in the world and then suddenly you feel like the punchline of someone else’s joke? But maybe there’s some wisdom to be found in a journey from Valentine’s Day to April Fools’ Day. Maybe conventional wisdom isn’t quite as wise as what we thought.
Join us this Lenten season as we explore what we know, think we know, don’t really know, and can’t know in our day-to-day lives.
“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
-William Shakespeare, As You Like It
“Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast.”
-1 Corinthians 1:26-29
3.4 Longing (Potluck & Community time)
4.1 Live (Easter Hike)
We invite you to participate throughout each week by taking photos that capture the subject matter for the upcoming week. For example, the week leading up to Love on 2.18, what do you see that embodies love? Photograph it and post it on social media with #Love and #TheOtherChurch. Then do the same for the following week and so on. Each service we'll have a montage of the photos taken by each of us. What a great way to see through the eyes of others! Take as many as you're inspired to take. If you're not a social media fan, email your photos to Jennifer@TOCLancaster.org.
We gather on Sundays at 5:30pm. All services will be held at Lancaster Theological Seminary's Santee Chapel except for our potluck on 3.4, which will be held at Mayer Commons also located on the seminary's campus. The Easter Hike location will be announced closer to the date. Click here for a campus map.
