Another season of Lent – now upon us. Those stark words – “Remember: You are dust, and to dust you will return.” But until we “return,” what shall we put this “dust” of ours to doing? We will consider five of the saints of the church, one each week for the five Sundays of Lent – not as a history lesson, but as a Faith lesson. Might their faith move us, inspire us as well as instruct us? This week, March 24, Mark will invite us to use our capacity to reason. Under the tutelage of Thomas Aquinas, this week’s protagonist, we will be challenged to compliment our faith with our mind, our hearts with our heads! Our worship at First UMC Burlington attempts to find the balance between the power of ancient liturgies and the realities of life in the 21st century. The Bible is our backdrop, the living canvass on which we strive to paint the pictures and stories of our lives. Jesus taught some of the most complex spiritual lessons with the simplest of stories. And what could be more simple than the command to love our neighbor? We invite you to join us for worship Sunday mornings at 9:45. Check out our Facebook Page and, for info regarding what’s going in the parish, go to our First UMC Burlington Community and ask to join – the group and the discussion.
