Together Sharing Christ’s Love

Third Sunday in Lent: What is Lent?

Many Christians have heard of Lent, but do all know what it means?  According to Merriam-Webster, Lent means "the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday to Easter as a period of penitence and fasting."

Lent begins each year on Ash Wednesday, 46 days before Easter Sunday.

Lent is meant to be a time of repentance.  That’s not a feeling of shame but an awareness that sin separates us from God and of what it cost Him to be reunited with us.

LCAQD Lutheran Services Lenten appeal 2024:

Our focus text for the 2024 appeal is:

‘I have heard their cry … indeed, I know their sufferings.'  (Exodus 3:7)

This text reminds us of God's love and care for his people.  Lutheran Services is one way that we as LCAQD put our faith in God's loving care into action.  Our appeal this year will support the ongoing work of Hospital Chaplaincy and Mary and Martha’s domestic violence refuge.  Envelopes available from the table in the narthex.


Prayer Points for the Week:

·        For those in authority, such as King Charles and his representatives; Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and members of parliament; Premier Steven Miles and state parliamentarians; Mayor Paul McVeigh and local councillors;

·        For the Church, LCAQD; that the church may show Christ to all who have no faith

·        For the pastors Bishop Paul Smith, District Bishop Mark Vainikka; Pastor Joel Pukallus and all pastors;

·        Those who teach in our homes, congregations and communities

·        Those who sow your word in the minds of strangers to you

·        Those who learn, so that they use their knowledge wisely

·        Those who work in the media

·        Those who can't read or write

·        Those who are ashamed of their bodies

·        Those who suffer from low self-esteem

·        Those who are so proud of their learning that they are of no help to anyone

·        Those who are wise enough to trust you more than anyone else
