A Lenten Pilgrimage
It’s hard to make ends meet through the end of the month. Some people find themselves making a choice between feeding their family and paying their bills. Every Monday, a warm and hearty meal will be served to all those who come to the corner at Sylvania and Talmadge (Christ Presbyterian Church). This caring ministry seeks to help those in our neighborhood and beyond.
Meals will be served from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The corner is easily accessible by bus route 39/39M at the Westfield Mall at Franklin Park or you can call TARTA at 419-243-RIDE (7433).
Experiencing Goodness: A Lenten Pilgrimage
A five-week Lenten Series
11:15 a.m. – 12:00 noon March 5 – April 2, 2017 CPC Chapel
In the midst of tension and division in our world today, we have much to gain from the experiences and insights of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. Archbishop Tutu is known for the joyful, hopeful way he approaches life, despite all the hardships and struggles he has experienced. He has received the Nobel Peace Prize and also served as the chair of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission which investigated apartheid-era crimes. In the book, “Made for Goodness and Why this Makes All the Difference” which he co-authored with his daughter, they explain how we can experience goodness and wholeness in our lives. Their faith leads them to believe that we are all designed for goodness and if we all recognized that truth it would change the world. In the preface to their book, they write:
Come and see some of the places we have seen. Come and share some of the lessons we have learned. Come and meet some of the people we have known. Walk with us on holy ground. Perhaps you will learn to see yourself through God’s eyes and come to know that your whole life is holy ground.
Our pastor, Tom Schwartz, has been moved and motivated by their stories and insights and he will be sharing them during this five-week series in our Chapel during Lent.
