Lent 2021

Lent at Trinity Lent is a season of forgiveness, a time to jump back in, to return to God, go back to church, or forge a new path if the old one stops working. Our Lenten Theme is “My Home Monastery” and we’ll be exploring together the ways to live a thoughtful and sacred life at home or at work, taking inspiration from monastic traditions of old. Each Sunday we will join together on Zoom at 10am for a time of Worship.

Make Your Home Monastery Corner We encourage you to set up a space in your home—a corner, a chair, a window—as a sacred space where you engage God in spiritual disciplines. Lenten prayer cards for your Trinity prayer book and a copy of three icons are included for your practice of prayer.

Ash Wednesday, February 17th –  In lieu of imposing ashes this year, we invite you to dig up some dirt and place it in a clear bowl/jar and add it to your home monastery corner—ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Zoom Worship, 7:30pm with UCC Seneca Valley

Zoom Room for Prayer, 7:30am-9am; 12:15-1pm
During Ash Wednesday, log on for a brief time of prayer and confession with Pastor Bonnie. Individuals will be admitted to the Zoom room one at a time.

Sundays in Lent – Feb. 21- Mar. 21

10-11am – Zoom Worship & Coffee Hour My Home Monastery

11:15am-12:15pm The Cross and the Lynching Tree Study

Theology Book Study This Lent, we will offer a study on the book The Cross and the Lynching Tree by theologian James Cone. This is a difficult and thought-provoking read that deepens our understanding of Jesus’ death on a cross through the lens of the lynching tree in American history. With a spirit of racial reconciliation, we will explore the theological contributions of the black church in America. This class will be co-led by myself (Pastor Bonnie) and Trinity members Phillip H. and Isatu F. on Sundays at 11:15am, starting February 21st. You are encouraged to order the book on your own and to read the first chapter for Feb 21st. If you are not able to get through the reading, we still welcome you to attend the class, as content will be summarized at the beginning of each session.

If you would like to listen to Week 1 of the Study, you can watch that here.
