.....and the darkness has not overcome it.

Beloved Christ the King Community, these are the words we have been declaring each Wednesday evening in the middle of our Holden Evening Vespers.  Indeed this is one of the theological claims of the gospel of John, which we will hear throughout the rest of this Lenten season.  This theme both connects backward to our first creation story from Genesis and forward into our own very lives today.  How are you and I connecting with the Light that is Jesus this Lenten season?  

If the answer to this question is one of uncertainty, one of neglect, or even one of shame, the good news is that it is never too late to renew our intentionality towards our relationship with God.  In fact, when we feel most parched and thirsting for peace and stillness, relief can be found in the Light that is Christ, shining persistently into those busy and dark places of our lives.  

It is not too late to start using our Lenten resources for personal reflection. (Embodied Promises Journal)

It is not too late to join your CTK family on Wednesday for soup and/or Holden evening vespers.

It is not too early to reserve time in your schedule to be present with your CTK family as we experience Jesus' journey to the cross together.  Come and help with Holy Week preparations on Saturday, March 23rd; Volunteer to help during worship at one of our special Holy Week services; Be present on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Vigil Saturday.  

God's love for each one of us is embodied in the promise of Jesus, the Light who shines in the darkness and overflows with sacrificial love that never tires of welcoming us back home.

Grace and peace, and most of all hope!
Pastor Jennifer
