From Pastor David Zemke:

When I was in seminary we learned that confession had two parts. The first part is actually confession, telling what you did wrong. Without this, of course, there can be no forgiveness. The second part of confession is contrition. In less grand words this means that we actually need to be sorry for what we’re saying we’ve done. Otherwise we’re either bragging or self-justifying. Once this is pointed out, it all seems obvious. I bring this up because we’re about to start into the season of Lent.

            Lent has been a season of repentance and contrition. But this year I want to ask a different question. What happens once you’ve received absolution and it’s still Lent? What I mean by this is that we are not to spend all of Lent trying to make ourselves feel sorry for sin. And we are also not supposed to spend all of Lent trying to think up new sins to ask for forgiveness. Confession is, actually, a short process. We are confronted by the law and feel contrition then we confess our sins and are forgiven. So, what comes next?

            Usually in Lent we also try to give something up or take up something new. One part of this is to try to busy ourselves so that we sin less. Idle hands, and I think more appropriately an idle mind, are indeed the Devil’s workshop. The other reason we take up new practices is so that we can become more like Christ. This is a life long struggle for all of us.

            This year, as we make our way through Lent let us ask ourselves one question. “What one thing can I do today that will make me more like Jesus.” This is different than “What would Jesus Do”? We don’t want to act like Jesus when we remember to ask the question. We want to actually become more like Jesus. God asks us in Leviticus 20:26 to be holy as He himself is holy. St. Peter repeats this claim in his first epistle. It’s a tall order to be sure. But at the same time, it’s something to which we all aspire. Let us walk through Lent this year asking this one question and see where God takes us.

“Somewhere Over the Rainbow!”

We are busy planning for our annual Preschool/Kindergarten Auction! We will hold it on April 24. This will be a unique event this year! We will invite children to attend with their parents and are planning some fun things for them! This will be a “drive-in” event, with car-hops bringing your food, Silent Auction in OZ (the Fellowship Hall) and an outdoor Live Auction piped through your car radio. Plus many other fun adventure! This is a large event that requires lots of parent help! We will hold our next planning meeting on Mar. 10 @ 3:00pm. Please come and share your ideas and talents for this fun event! This is a large event and our primary fundraiser. It requires lots of parent help! Please let me know if there

is any area in which you would like to serve for this event.

Young Adult Small Group - Just an update on how this small group is going. We've been blessed to be meeting every Monday at 6 pm and study 1 Peter. It's been a blessing to see people who are eager to feast on the Word of the Lord and are seeking to grow in spiritual maturity. God has brought people from Prince of Peace, the community, believer, skeptic and doubters alike. Such a blessing to have this ministry! Please keep this, and all our small groups, in your prayers.

Also, if you are interested in being in a small group (it's my desire that each person at POP is) please come talk to me. We'd like to form more groups as the needs arise. 2 were started in 2020, and it would be great to keep that pace! Or, we have a handful of already established groups that would love more members. Let's talk!
