Greetings in Christ Jesus
Welcome to March,
The name March is derived from the Latin word Martius, the Roman god of war. In Ancient Rome, March marked the start of the military campaign season. Today much of March is about Lent. In Lent the church sets aside time to reflect on Jesus and His campaign to defeat sin, death, and the devil. At the cross Jesus took our place and His sacrifice removed these enemies from us. Lent gives us the opportunity to draw closer to God and His love for us. In this month of March, rejoice in the victory won for you!
This Lenten Season the Senior Saints will study and meditate on the Hallelujah Psalms, 113-118. These psalms were sung at the Passover meal. Therefore Jesus and His disciples would have sang them the night He gave us the Lord’s Supper.
Note: Lenten worship is available on Wednesdays at 1:30 and 6:30. The 1:30 Service is in the Senior Center Chapel. God bless your life this month!
In Christ’s Love,
Beware the Ides of March. Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44BC. It changed the course of Roman history. Today it means look out for trouble that could change your life. Have no fear, it has no power over us. Strange how events in history are used today. But I would warn all rabbits to beware, for Basset Hounds are getting ready to sniff them out. I have sniffed some March smiles for your good health. The bigger your smile, the healthier you will be.
