Dear members and friends of Wyoming Presbyterian Church,
As we fast approach the season of Lent, I would like to share with you a poem that I quoted in worship earlier this month:
“This is not / the age of information. // This is not /the age of information.
Forget the news, / and the radio, / and the blurred screen.
This is the time of loaves / and fishes.
People are hungry, / and one good word is bread / for a thousand.”
—David Whyte, “Loaves and Fishes,” The House of Belonging
The poet, David Whyte, wrote this poem in 1996, but it easily could have been written today. It seems to ring true despite the fact that we have even more technology than we did over 20 years ago and many more news outlets. In this era when trust is at an all-time low, aren’t we all starving for one good word? Is the church where we find that word that feeds the multitudes? I hope so.
This month we enter the season of Lent, a time of reflection upon the Word that feeds us and sustains us. It is precisely during this season of Lent that we slow down, turn off the noise (or at least turn it down), and reflect on the story of our collective faith. As we pare down our lives, we find that the Word is what truly nourishes us. Here is a list of opportunities for worship, study, and fellowship at Wyoming Church during Lent and Easter
There are also additional activities in our vibrant community; Please check out our website at wyomingpresbyterian.org or our facebook page (“Wyoming Presbyterian Church”) for more details. At a time when we are all hungry for a good word, I hope that you will join us during this Lenten season to come together and to be fed.
Grace and peace, Rev. Caroline Unzaga, Interim Pastor
