Transformed - Women’s Lenten Day of Reflection Sunday, April 7, 2019
On Ash Wednesday we were marked with ashes on our foreheads. The ashes remind us that there is something wrong with our hearts, that we are not as we should be. Perhaps we love things and make choices that we shouldn’t while we fail to love and make choices that we should. It is a reminder that we are broken. This is not to make us feel we are bad but to remind us that we are called to be incredible. We have been made for our Lord God.
The ashes are not just thrown on our foreheads, the ashes are traced in the sign of the cross reminding us that in the midst of all of this: our brokenness, our bad choices, our failures, Jesus claims us as his own. When those ashes are traced upon our foreheads, Jesus says You are mine. Mine. When we look at the cross, we see the love that said your sins are mine, mine.
It is our hope that you will join us for a day of reflection during this Lenten season. Come, escape from the noise and demands of the world. Join us as we sing, pray, and worship our Lord. Jesus not only calls us into a loving relationship with Him, He wants to be intimate with us. Come, lift up your heart and say, Here I am Lord, I am yours.
