Lent | Sunday Feast Day #4

SABBATH FEAST

What does it look like to "feast" in this unique season as a body, physically separated yet hearts together?

Historically during Lent, throughout the week believers around the world fast to some extent or another in an effort to set their gaze toward Easter and align their hearts with Jesus' moving toward his sacrifice on the cross. But Sundays? SUNDAYS. Sundays were considered a FEAST day and not counted in the traditional “40 days” of Lent. Each Sunday between Ash Wednesday and Easter is set aside as a Sabbath respite from the fasting and contemplation of the rest of the Lenten season and create a holy rhythm between fasting and feasting.

In the heart of this tradition, we encourage you today in this unique season to step into:
  • Encouragement in the Word as you study at home personally or with family
  • Engaging belonging with our church body online, over email, phone calls or FaceTime
  • To celebrate with family or friends as you feel prudent
  • And to pursue at least some small measure of rest and recreation today

You are loved, and we are in this together, even at a distance. Let us know how we can support you. Please email allthingsnew@wachurch.us to share with us any praise, encouragement, or prayer requests you may have during this time, and a few of us will be taking the time to pray and respond.

Feel free, too, to worship at home with our 2020 Lenten Worship Playlist on Spotify here, growing daily one song at a time.
