Lent 2016

This is the key portion of the “About” page from 2016 describing that year’s focus.

This blog consists of a series of daily verses and brief reflections around our Lenten theme.  In 2016 our theme is “Called, Gathered, Enlightened, Sanctified: God’s Work in Us” drawn from our focus this year on the Apostles’ Creed.

From Martin Luther’s explanation of the Apostles’ Creed in the Small Catechism we get the following themes for our Sundays in Lent this year:

  • “He has created me and all that exists”
  • “He has purchased and freed me from all sins”
  • “He has called me through the Gospel”
  • “He gathers me into the Body of Christ”
  • “He enlightens me by his Word and Spirit”

It is the work of Pastor David Bonde at Los Altos Lutheran Church developing ideas provided by members of the congregation.
