Colors of the Cross: Mid-week Lenten Worship Theme
This Lent, on Wednesday evenings, we will walk through the Passion narrative, see different parts of Jesus’ Passion, and connect colors to them. As another way to connect to these themes, we will have a take home piece available. That will be a cross which you can pickup on Ash Wednesday, and then each Wednesday you can take home a coordinating piece of colored fabric that connects to Jesus’ journey to the cross.
