Your Lenten Journey

All Christians are invited “to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word”

Wednesdays in Lent will include a study program at 7 PM in Warren beginning March 13th. Each week during Lent, The Episcopal Mission of Warren County is offering, Practicing the Way of Love, at 7 PM at our Warren location. This opportunity is part of our traditional understanding of Lent being a time for special devotion and study in our faith lives.

The Way of Love is a way of life. More than a program or curriculum, it is an intentional commitment to a set of practices. It’s a commitment to follow Jesus: Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest.  For more information on the Way of Love and a video presentation by our Presiding Bishop, The Rt. Rev. Michael Curry go to https://www.episcopalchurch.org/way-of-love.

Single Use Plastic

EMWC Single Use Plastic Challenge – Each year we individually decide how we will fast during Lent, maybe giving up a food or drink, Facebook, or something else that may help us focus more on our spiritual lives. This year we are introducing a congregational fast, a fast from single use plastic, which is choking our earth and, in some cases, killing animals who become entangled in it or eat it. For example, numerous whales have been found dead, their stomach’s full of plastic.

Please prayerfully consider giving up one or more types of single use plastic: bags, straws, water and soda bottles, cups, coffee stirrers, eating utensils, food packaging, etc. We will provide a few helpful incentives: reusable metal straws, reusable shopping bags, reusable water bottles.
