From our Interim Minister, Lee Berg
Thank you Wash Park UCC for the wonderful welcome on Sunday! It is a real joy to be serving with you as your interim pastor. The energy of worship is inviting and delightful! As we begin this new chapter in Wash Park's sacred story of ministry, community and relationship building, and advocacy for social justice, let me encourage you to lean into the possibilities of this time together. The good ship Wash Park is experiencing a robust time of creative renewal that is full of opportunities to dream new dreams of who we are and who we are becoming as a community of faith and action. Invite your friends and family to experience what is happening here.
Peace be with you all,

What is Coming Up at WPUCC?
LENT is a traditional Christian season of forty days (minus Sundays) which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring." Lenten practices of self-examination, reflection and personal sacrifice may take modern or historic forms, rooted in spiritual development and concerns for global justice.
Sunday, April 14th Worship Celebration 10am
Journeying Together Into Holy Week. We will combine our Palm Sunday observance with other parts of the story traditionally observed on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. What empowered Jesus to continue his ministry of radical love in the face of increasing difficulty and fear? . This "one-stop Holy Week" service will include an illustration of Jesus' way of service, in contrast to the Roman Empire's way of domination; story and celebration of a ritual meal we now know as Communion; acknowledgments of betrayals and trials that continue in the world today; and a closing word of hope. Music and ritual will combine with storytelling to create a multi-sensory experience of the Holy Week story. Our goal is a timely worship experience that can guide our thoughts through the coming week.
