The Season of Lent
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lent, the Christian's 40-day spiritual journey to
Jesus' cross and tomb to await the proclamation of Easter. The name Lent comes from the
Anglo-Saxon word lengten, which means "spring"-- the time of the year when the days
noticeably lengthen. The season of Lent finds its roots in the ancient Church's
pre-Easter fast and intensified instruction for converts to Christianity who were baptized
at the Easter Eve vigil. In the fourth century, this pre-Easter time of preparation was
observed by all Christians, not just new converts anticipating their baptism. The season
eventually began on the Wednesday that occured six and a half weeks before Easter. This
resulted in a Laten season of 40 days, a number that reflected Jesus' 40 days of fasting and
temptation at the start of his ministry (Matthew 4:1-11). Sundays are technically excluded
from the 40-day Lenten season. since each Sunday is considered a "little Easter" celebration.

The Transfiguration of Our Lord
February 11, 2018
 
Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School!
In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s.  We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today.  We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness to us through Jesus.
Worship Focus: As we close out the season of Epiphany we see our Lord shine his light big and bright one more time before the trials of Lent ahead. Seeing his true glory must have brought awe and comfort to the disciples as Jesus faced the difficult times to come. We also daily take heart in the fact that our Savior is true God and Lord and that he has given his glory for us to shine.

Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany February 4, 2018

February 4, 2018

Focus of Today’s Service: Whose life is not impacted in one way or another by sickness or tragedy? Why is this? The short answer is quite simple; while the long answer is a bit more complicated. We are not without answers; nor are we without hope. We are reminded of some answers through our Scripture Readings for today. God open our ears to what we need to hear.
