LENT ACTIVITIES 2018. Use this Lenten pamphlet as a guide for different things to do throughout Lent. Here are some suggestions for this week on your Lenten journey:

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH  Give thanks for clean water; $0.25 per tap in your house.


What makes a fire burn is space between the logs, a breathing space.

Too much of a good thing too many logs packed in too tight

can douse the flames almost as surely as a pail of water would.

 So building fires requires attention to the spaces in between,

as much as to the wood.

 When we are able to build open spaces in the same way we have learned

to pile on the logs, then we can come to see how it is fuel, and absence of fuel

together, that makes fire possible.

 We only need to lay a log lightly from time to time.

A fire grows simply because the space is there, with openings

in which the flame that knows just how it wants to burn can find its way.

                                    ~Judy Brown

What fuels you?  What spaces do you have in your life to grow?

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22nd Many in our world and even our community are spending the day hungry.  Have at least one simple meal today: rice, pasta, soup.  Pray for those who are going without.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24TH Fair Trade products guarantee to give people who grew them a fair share in the profits.  Cocoa and coffee bean farmers are often exploited.  Find places that sell products that are fairly traded and commit to using them.  (Some grocery stores carry items.  Ten Thousand Villages may be a place to start!)

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH  Be thankful for our worship space.  Add $0.10 for each stained glass window in the church (look everywhere!).


Throughout Lent, we will be supporting Tavistock Assistance Program—TAP.  Each weekend there is a task for you.  Bring your coins to worship with you on Sunday mornings.  Containers will collect them at front entrance and during fellowship after worship time.  You can choose to do this as a family or as individuals.  Use your own judgment to determine amounts.  This will remind us of how much we have been given, how much we have to share.
