Concerns of the Church
Call to Worship (I John 3:2)
Leader: Beloved, we are God's children now;
People: What we will be has not yet been revealed.
Leader: What we do know is this:
People: When he is revealed, we will be like him,
Leader: For we will see him as he is.
Prayer of Confession (in unison)
God of compassion, in Jesus Christ, you reveal the light of your glory, but we turn away, distracted by our own plans. We confess that we speak when we should listen and act when we should wait. Forgive our aimless enthusiasms. Grant us wisdom to live in your light. Grant us wisdom to follow in the way of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
Declaration of Forgiveness
Leader: Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. (Rom 8:34)
People: So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (II Cor. 5:17)

Today is Transfiguration of the Lord Sabbath, which is celebrated on the Sabbath preceding Lent. This Sabbath commemorates the glory of Christ as demonstrated on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-9).
Wednesday, February 13, 2002, is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Lent consists of the forty days and six Sabbaths prior to Easter. Lent is a period of discipline, reflection, and abstinence. In imitation of Christ's self-denial, we prepare ourselves for the holy celebration of Easter.
Valentine's Day is Thursday, February 14
