The Lenten Fast that Nobody Wanted

As we live through this strange Lenten social fast that nobody wanted, I hope that we can spend some time with the disciples as they too struggle to adapt to a new normal. I hope that we can trust that “this too shall pass” and on the other side will be resurrection. It may not be on our desired timeline, but it will be. Please know that you all are in my prayers; please keep the clergy and staff of St. Peter’s in yours.

Exciting New Fellowship Opportunity for Lent

Although we are still at the beginning of Epiphany, the season of Lent will be here before we know it! During Lent, Christians typically choose to either give something up, or to take on a new spiritual practice. This year, at the invitation of the Diocese of North Carolina, we would like to offer you an option for a Lenten practice.

Adult Formation at St. Peter’s this Fall

Fall formation will resume on August 25 and there are many exciting opportunities to learn and grow in your faith over the upcoming months at St. Peter’s. Keep a close eye on your eNews and Sunday leaflets for the most up to date information about how to get involved.

Images of Our Beautiful Diversity

We bring all of ourselves when we hold out our hands to receive the Eucharist, and Jesus brought all of himself when he stretched out his arms on the cross. Over the next few weeks, I encourage you to reflect on these images of hands – both Jesus’s and our own – and marvel at the work that God has done.

Lenten Adult Formation

This Lent we invite you to join us on Sundays as we delve into Jesus’s final week leading up to his crucifixion in the Forum, and learn about and practice various spiritual disciplines in our Lenten series. Come grow in your faith and deepen your relationship with God during this holy season!
