This Lent, the clergy are calling Church of the Resurrection to focus on Christ, our hope for reconciliation (Ephesians 2:14). Pray and fast that reconciliation may happen in these ways:
+ people far from God may return to Him, and we may serve and love them
+ broken or strained relationships may be mended by forgiveness, courage, and overcoming love
+ our relationships with Anglicans in the Upper Midwest may grow and lead to greater mission (visit www.midwestanglican.org)

For Lent, Resurrection artist Laura Tabbut created a beautiful image featuring Adam and Eve’s expulsion from the garden. The drawing evokes the way that sin separates us from God, each other, and creation. However, just as Lent invariably leads us to the celebration of Easter, we know that there is always hope in the reconciliation that Christ offers us through His death and resurrection.
During Lent we will be singing a new song by Steve Williamson that is a setting of Ephesians 4:4-6.
