Holy Vessels: A Lenten Season of Recovery

Over the past year, we’ve experienced some joy and beauty, yet we’ve also endured pain and struggle both individually and collectively. In the midst of this brokenness, we recognize our need for repair and recovery. We invite you to join us for a series of worship services called “Holy Vessels” from February 21 - March 28 as we seek physical, communal, emotional, intellectual, and environmental health. Over these six weeks, we’ll explore the healing stories of Jesus that show us divine solidarity with human suffering, which point us toward making something beautiful from that which is seemingly broken. Join us each Sunday at 9am or 11:15am at westlake-umc.org/livestream.

Ash Wednesday Reflection

Due to conditions related to the weather we are offering this Ash Wednesday Refection instead of of our scheduled zoom service. Please reach out to WUMC if there is any way we can be of assistance to you during this difficult time.

In the Christian calendar, the six weeks leading up to Easter are called the season of Lent. At Easter we celebrate resurrection, rebirth and new beginnings. Lent, on the other hand, is a time of reflection, humility and growth. And Lent begins on what is known as Ash Wednesday. Over the past year, we’ve experienced some joy and beauty, yet we’ve also endured pain and struggle both individually and collectively. In the midst of this brokenness, we recognize our need for repair and recovery. Throughout the six weeks of Lent, in a series called “Holy Vessels,” we’ll explore the healing stories of Jesus that show us divine solidarity with human suffering, which point us toward making something beautiful from that which is seemingly broken.
