Resurrection Voices

 
Lent and Holy Week Schedule
This year we have been blessed with a long Epiphany season, which will come to an end on March 3, Transfiguration Sunday.

Lent 2019 begins on March 6. It is a 40-day (not including Sundays) season in which we especially remember and reflect upon Jesus’ human struggles and suffering during his last days on earth. It is a time for deeply contemplating God’s great love for the world, made known most fully through the death and resurrection of his Son, Jesus.

March Mission of the Month
The Hope Center

Ralph Zick, executive director of the Hope Center, will be coming to speak to our congregation on Sunday, March 3 for a short "Temple Talk.” He will also be available for the Adult Forum after the service for a more in-depth discussion. The month of March is a joint fundraising opportunity for Waukesha County Provides, a cooperative solicitation of the Hebron House, the Hope Center, the Women's Center and the Waukesha County Food Pantry. Mr. Zick will explain the role the Hope Center plays in providing for residents' needs, including clothing (men’s and women’s underwear, socks, boys’ and girls’ clothing and personal/ hygiene items) and children's gently used books for 0-3 years of age.

Please join us on March 3 to learn more about this important work.

The Word for Your Week…
The reflections/questions relate to the highlighted passage for the day.

Prayer for Your Week        attributed to St. Francis
 
O Lord Jesus, make us instruments of your peace, that where there is hatred, we may sow love, where there is injury, pardon, and where there is despair, hope. Grant, O divine master, that we may seek to console, to understand, and to love in your name, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
 
Sunday, February 24        Psalm 37    Genesis 45:3-15         Luke 6:27-38
This may be among Jesus’ most difficult teachings to obey. Vs. 31 is what we generally call ‘the golden rule,’ and most of us give our assent to its teaching. But loving our enemies?! How does Jesus’ command to love even our enemies square with the Old Testament vision of “an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth?” Does the disparity trouble you? Why or why not?
 
Monday, February 25        Psalm 38    Genesis 33:1-17       1 Corinthians 11:2-16
This passage is the culmination of years of bitterness and anger between the twin brothers, Jacob and Esau. (Read their story in Genesis 25:19—chapter 33.) Have you ever been afraid to believe that someone has forgiven you? Has anyone ever doubted your forgiveness of them? What finally persuaded you of their sincerity? How did you persuade him/her?
 
Tuesday, February 26    Psalm 38    1 Samuel 24:1-22         1 Corinthians 11:17-33
In this passage, the psalmist calls upon God to save him—fully trusting that God will do so. At the same time, the psalmist attributes his own suffering to his sinfulness. Do you believe that suffering is a God given consequence for our sin? How does Jesus address this point of view?
 
Wednesday, February 27    Psalm 38    Leviticus 5:1-13         Luke 17:1-4
This passage is a good example of how the sacrificial system worked in Judaism: If you sin, you make atonement through a sin offering (of an animal you purchase) made by the priest on your behalf. This system differs completely from the way Christians understand God’s forgiveness. Do you see any value in the old sacrificial system of atonement? Explain.
 
Thursday, February 28    Psalm 99    Deuteronomy 9:1-5         Acts 3:11-16
In this passage, Peter speaks to a crowd of people who have just witnessed the healing of a “crippled beggar.” Peter comments on their amazement that faith in the name of Jesus could bring healing and wholeness. Have you ever witnessed such an amazing healing in Jesus’ name? Have you experienced healing/wholeness through your faith in Jesus? (Your example may not be as dramatic as the healing of the man in Acts 3.)
 
Friday, March 1        Psalm 99    Deuteronomy 9:6-14         Acts 10:1-8
On the brink of military victory, Moses reminds the people that they will not win the battle because of their own righteousness, but because of God’s will and decision. In fact, several verses of this passage remind the Israelites of their own sin, lest they claim the win for themselves. Have you ever taken the credit for someone else’s results? Why do you suppose that Moses is instructing the people that their victory will come from the hand of God and not from their own actions?

Saturday, March 2        Psalm 99    Deuteronomy 9:15-24         Luke 10:21-24
In this brief passage, Jesus gives thanks to the Father that he has revealed the kingdom of God not to “the wise and the intelligent,” but to “infants” in the faith. Why do you suppose that God chooses to keep things hidden from the powerful, yet discloses them to the powerless?
