March 2019


We have definitely experienced winter here in South Dakota this year. But you know what happens in March - Spring officially starts.  I look forward to some warmer days but truly do appreciate the beauty in all the seasons.  I am reminded each day I live in the beautiful Black Hills of His glorious Creation! 


With spring we begin our season of Lent. Ash Wednesday is March 6.  Lenten lunches begin March 13 at noon at the United Church of Christ.  Our day to service is April 10.  Of course we will also have the Lenten services at Our Savior’s at 6:26 pm on Wednesday Evenings. 


Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebration of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.  The forty days is symbolic of some other biblical history as well:  

  • Moses & Elijah spent forty days in the wilderness.Image result for spring christian quotes
  • Noah had rain for forty days and forty nights
  • The Jews wandered forty years to the promised land.
  • Jonah gave the City of Nineveh forty days to repent.

As you enter into this season of Lent and you begin this time of reflection and the sacrifice of God’s only Son may you know the joy of His Love in your everyday Life.


In the words of Paul Bellan Boyer:

“Lent is a season of turning –
Turning from what is hurtful and
     toward what is healing
Turning from what is shattered and
     toward what is whole Re-turning to the Lord
Wishing you a holy and blessed Lent.”    


~Loretta Greni, President WELCA
