The Pastor s Corner …
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus!
Lent is a season when we prepare ourselves. But for what
are we preparing ourselves? We focus on the spiritual
disciplines of praying, fasting and tithing. Somehow we have
come to equate our practice of these spiritual gifts with a need
to sacrifice and suffer during Lent. It’s like the church has come
to regard Lent as a time we prepare to die. Preparing to die
destroys our hope of living our lives into the future, building the
vision that our life comes to an end.
Christians wake up! Lent is not a time to prepare to die.
Dying is giving up and giving in to death. It is preparing
ourselves to come to an end. That message does not come to
us from in any of the gospels.
Lent is a time we practice our spiritual disciplines and
prepare to live! The spiritual disciplines for Lent do not change.
The spiritual disciplines remain the same and the words sound
the same; however, preparing to live is different than preparing
to die. When we prepare to live, we envision ourselves in a
future that endlessly continues. Visioning ourselves in living into
the future gives us hope and inspires us to dream of new ways
we can work today with God in re-creating the world.
Community Service
February 18, 6:30 PM
Victory Christian Center
1118 Poquoson Avenue
Speaker: Rev. Charles Stacy
Community Churches Choir!
Join us for a unique worship
experience as we begin
our Lenten journey.
Each Lent, we prepare for Easter and the resurrection of
Jesus because we are preparing for our resurrection. Praying,
fasting and tithing prepare us to build something that continues
to live and grow. During this holy season, we prepare ourselves
to move to the next level.
The Gospel of Mark is the lectionary gospel until Advent of
2015. We will keep Lent in the context of Mark. Our theme for
the season of Lent this year is “Cross It Up.”
I encourage all of you to practice the spiritual disciplines of
praying, fasting and tithing as means of making more room for
God to work in your life. May we discern God’s will and do
God’s will as we prepare to live into, through, and beyond Lent.
Grace and Peace,
Barry

Lunch Bunch
February 25, 12:00 PM
at the Poquoson Diner
All women are welcome.
Tabernacle UMW have selected HUMAN
TRAFFICKING as our Social Action goal this year.
Traffickers buy and sell men, women, and children
for different purposes, such as labor and organs, but sex trafficking is the most
prevalent form. As unbelievable as it may seem, there are more enslaved
human beings in the world today than at any other time in the history of the
world.
There is something that we can do to help the victims of this crime. We will be
supporting “Free the Girls” an organization that collects new and gently used
bras of all sizes and styles, including sports bras, nursing bras, and camisoles.
Your donations will help survivors of human trafficking start their own business
selling them while they recover and build their new life. These are women who
are often ostracized by their families and their communities and in great need of
a means of supporting themselves and their children.
For more information about this project or to donate contact Janet Dickinson at
868-7434 or [email protected] or Dana Dunham at 868- 4102 or

REVEALED: The Life You’ve Only Imagined
Adult Study continues on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM
Revealed is designed to help you understand God’s plan for us. We are
looking closely at our lives to see what we actually do with our resources: our
time, talent, and treasure. We will consider whether we are pleased with what
we discover or whether, at the end of life here on earth, we may have regrets.
God’s great plan of purpose and meaning is available for all who desire it.
Revealed is a journey toward taking hold of all God has planned for us. This
program, facilitated by Nancy Grizzard, will continue throughout February
except for Ash Wednesday:
Week 4, February 11
Week 5, February 25

Scouting Corner
The Troop supported Tabernacle by serving Wednesday night dinner
again this past month. The meals are always amazing. Watch the calendar
for the next opportunity to share a meal with the Scouts.
In December, we spent the night at Laser
Quest in Virginia Beach playing laser tag. It
was a great time. in January, we went skiing at
Timberline in West Virginia and practiced
scuba diving at the YMCA.
Troop 28 had two scouts advance to the
highest rank in Scouting, that of Eagle Scout
recently. Please join me in congratulating Dillon
Scot and Jake Angle for earning the rank of Eagle Scout. We also
celebrated at Tom Ferguson’s and Hunter Morse’s Eagle Court of Honor.
The Boy Scouts of America offers great opportunities for our youth and we
thank Tabernacle for sponsoring all the age-levels of Boy Scout units. If
your son is at least in kindergarten and not yet 21 years old, there are
great opportunities for him in Scouting. Young women between 14 and 20
years old may also join the Venture Scouts at Tabernacle. Please contact
the church office to be put in touch with the right unit leader for your child’s
age. You and your children are welcome to join us.

February is Heart
Havens Month!
Thank you for letting us store our
turkeys at Tabernacle. Without your
help, we don’t know what we would do.
Enclosed is a thank you from a family
we helped.
Excerpt of letter:
“I wanted to thank you all from the
bottom of my heart. Words cannot fully
express my feelings. Times have been
hard for me and my daughter. Your
thoughtfulness, kindness, and generosity
are greatly appreciated. With out the
support of the Empty Stocking Fund, I
don’t know what we would have done
for Christmas. My daughter cannot get
over the fact that strangers are helping
us. I don’t have a good answer except to
say that there are people who reach out
to others in time of need. Maybe next
year, if things are better, my daughter
and I can get things for a family in need.
Again, thank you so much.”
Thanks
