Reflections on Lent and Easter
by the Reverend Lynn Santulli | February 16, 2021Lent and Easter have always been very significant seasons here at CAPC.
In fact, attendance during this season exceeds even that of Advent and Christmas.
The season of Lent is a time for us to press pause on our lives for a bit and invest in cultivating
faith practices that yield a richer spiritual life.
We remember the sacrifices our Lord made and the wondrous gift of salvation and forgiveness He offers.
We also ponder anew how our own offerings of time, talent and treasures mark our response to that gift.
Of course we know that this year, like last year, remains different than we had before.
So in the midst of change, it is good to find the touchpoints in our lives that do not change.
God is eternal and present with us in good times and in bad.
How we worship and with whom we are able to gather may shift, but the ultimate desire to draw
closer to God and feel His presence and praise Him for His blessings never changes.
We may not be able to do all the fun things we used to do prior to the pandemic, but worship,
prayer, acts of service, showing compassion, being a voice of encouragement, singing our praises
--well, those things never change.
At CAPC we are blessed with a sanctuary that can hold many people and still retain health and safety protocols. We are blessed with a campus that has always been designed to serve the people who enter here. We are blessed to be able to life up the resounding notes of our incredible organ to sing praise to our Lord. We offer a variety of ways for you to engage with this special season...online offerings, private devotions, special worship opportunities, the list goes on. We hope you will come and join us. Check out our website for some of our offerings and perhaps even stop in on Sunday morning to worship with us and discover items on campus that aren't available online.
May you be blessed this Lenten season and feel our Lord's amazing Spirit guide you home.
