LENT – DON’T JUST WATCH,
The 40 days of Lent begin each year with Ash Wednesday and continue through Holy Saturday, the
day before Easter Sunday. Sundays are not counted in
the 40 days, as Sundays since ancient times have been
called Little Easters. Lent can be fascinating as we
follow Jesus to Jerusalem and his suffering and death.
But let’s make it more than fascinating, let’s jump in
and make it an adventure in which we are
Many people grew up with the idea that one is to
“give up” something for Lent, such as chocolate or
movies or drinking or something else one enjoys, as a
way of sacrificing or avoiding distractions. That has
some good psychology to it, so if you wish to do that,
go for it. Another valuable discipline during Lent is
to commit to praying more regularly and for a special
chosen purpose. Most of you have received our
bookmark for this season, defining how to pray for
God’s will to be done in your life and through our
church’s ministries. If you don’t have your bookmark
yet, pick one up Sunday or ask at the church office.
The bookmark is a challenge from Pastor Sam and
myself to join us in prayer every day till Easter, with
Jesus as our host.
This year on Sundays we will read some of the most
exciting ‘big lesson’ stories from John, such as
Nicodemus, the woman at the well, the man born
blind, and the raising of Lazarus. Don’t miss these
amazing encounters with Jesus, in which every person
involved discovered their life to be irreversibly
changed in a wonderful way.
And don’t miss our midweek Lenten services each
Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and again at 6:45 p.m., with
a soup and bread supper at 6:00 p.m. Each week we
will absorb new meaning from Jesus as he heads for

some hard (or not so hard) work. People with a

account of a courageous 18-year-old
from Nashville who gave up every
comfort and convenience to become the adoptive
mother to 13 girls in Uganda.
A passion to follow Jesus.
Katie Davis Majors left over Christmas break of her
senior year for a “short” mission trip to Uganda and
her life was turned completely inside out. The book
invites you on a journey of radical love down the red
dirt roads of Uganda.
Join the ladies in the LIBRARY for lively discussion
and tasty treats all facilitated by Claudia Sawin. All
women welcome. Even if you haven’t read the book
or you meant to read it, come to the discussion and

HOSPITALITY HOUSE EVENING
PoP has done it again! The meal provider list is full for March 3-8. Our Community Meal as well as
Claudia Sawin, Diane Pierson, Gail Korakis, Jude
Gustafson, and Mel Schneider are the volunteers.
THANK YOU hardly seems enough—but THANK
YOU! The House residents love your choice of meals.
They say you are the best—and you are! Everyone
appreciates your caring hearts—me included.
HOSPITALY HOUSE SUPPLIES
March is one of the two months that PoP is specifically asked to donate household and office
supplies. In the past another church has shared this
responsibility with us—BUT this month we are the
only one. So PLEASE note the needs that are listed
on the HH bulletin board. You delivering the items
to the House really helps—1419 SW 150th, Burien
(Lake Burien Presbyterian Church). If that isn’t
doable, place the supplies in the HH donation box,
under the HH bulletin board. Once again, thank you.
Donations are tax deductible.
