Seasons of the Spirit ~ SeasonsFUSION

Lectionary resources for worship, faith formation, and service

Join the conversation

We hope this week’s blog will be created by and in community.

To get us started:

A friend, via Facebook, offered this as a reflection as we prepare for Lent

“Draw Near” by Margaret Silf

What are your plans for Lent in the life of your congregation? 

We believe that in order to create worship and Christian education resources that are relevant we need to hear from and listen to real people in real communities of faith.

Right now, the Seasons of the Spirit publishing team is gathered to discuss church trends, hopes, needs, challenges, dreams and visions as we plan Seasons resources into the future.

Please join the conversation by leaving a reply, your voice will be heard.

    We are using 8 1/2 x 14 sheets of paper photocopied as placemants for the pancake supper with synopsis of what Shrove Tuesday and Lent are about. Reflecting on our Humanness, Week One: How do we in our humanness reflect the glory of God? That’s as far as I’ve got! More later!

      Thanks–this is something I’d like to try at our Shrove Tuesday gathering.

    Well, we began with the labyrinth idea…and things grew! We were going to put up a bunch of labyrinths, and then that evolved into street signs. So the walls – we have 2 HUGE white walls – will be decorated with a number of road signs – turn left; roundabout; stop; merge; no u-turn – etc. Where do we travel? How do we journey? What guides/limits/encourages us? When do we want to detour, or leave the journey completely? What happens to us?
    We also will be filling the sanctuary with suitcases – aiming for about 50 or so that will accumulate through Lent. Old, junky, falling apart ones. Ones that have stories to tell. Ones that have seen better days. These will stack up during Lent and then, on Palm Sunday, people will silently at the end of worship come up and take a suitcase or two out of the sanctuary, leaving it bare.
    Easter Sunday, the suitcases will be back where they were – but opened up, and with flowers bursting out. Imagine a clunky old wooden suitcase, clasp broken, worn out…and on Easter Sunday it will be open with a big pot of azaleas bursting out…

      This sounds really exciting! Can’t wait to see what this community does for Pentecost 1 2013 as the development team.
