It's Still Lent

“Wait… what day is it?”

I’ve asked myself this question multiple times the last few days. The interruption to daily life has caused brain fog for many, myself included. It’s the same sort of daze that kicks in when one goes on vacation. Daily and weekly time seems to congeal into one big blob.

This was most obvious to me this morning, when I realized that we are still in the season of Lent. There has been no normal routine the last several days, and I have neglected my Lenten disciplines in a major way. There are moments when the first Sunday of Lent, just 3 weeks ago, when we were all gathered together for worship, feels like a lifetime ago.

Time is a funny thing. Sometimes we obsess over it. Sometimes we ignore it. Yet time happens, whether we pay attention or not. And, time is a Holy gift, given by God so that we might use it to be with each other and Him. When we ignore time, or get lost in it, we reject God’s precious blessing.

Proverbs 16:3,9 says, “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed… We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.”

Brothers and sisters, take this evening to remind yourself of your Lenten plans, and remember God has already pre-ordained them. Persevere in observing a Holy Lent, reconnecting with God, reconciling with God, and reestablishing your commit to walk in the footsteps of Christ daily, being born to new life through the power of the Holy Spirit.

*** A bit of business – I had a small gathering of clergy and worship leaders yesterday to plan how to do worship over what I anticipate will be the next few Sundays. We will be partnering with The Rev. Mike Brady from St. Augustine of Hippo in Galveston to bring you online worship live on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. The broadcast link will be emailed to you each week, posted on the front page of our website, and posted to our Facebook page. It will be streamed from both Facebook Live and Youtube. If you are unable to join us live at 10:00 a.m., you will still be able to go back and watch the service. We will alternate broadcasting from St. Christopher and St. Augustine. We will do the liturgy of Holy Eucharist Rite II with traditional hymns and contemporary songs. We will have a children’s sermon and regular sermon each week. We will give adoration to the blessed sacrament. WE WILL WORSHIP TOGETHER! Please keep checking your email, our Facebook page, and for the latest information.***

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. May the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, keep you safe and make you strong, this night and always. Amen.

Fr. Brian+
