Lent begins on March 4th, lasting until Easter which comes on April 20th. Unlike Advent, which has four themes every year, we take up one topic each year for Lent. This year, "The Three Words You Can't Say at Fountain Street Church - Sin, Suffering, and Salvation." As in previous years, we also feature music from the secular theater that shares the theme. This year, the show is "Les Miserables." But before entering into Lent, the Rev. Fred Wooden pauses on March 2nd to note something.
March 16 - "Carnal Knowledge" - Those of a certain age may remember a movie, which is the topic of this week. If that doesn't get you to Church, nothing will. We will hear "I Dreamed a Dream" from "Les Mis." The Rev. Fred Wooden speaking.
March 23 - "God'll Get You For That" - Suffering is universal, but does it mean anything? "Master of the House" from "Les Mis" this week. The Rev. Fred Wooden speaking.
March 30 - "Faithful Are The Wounds" - Speaking of suffering, the Rev. Fred Wooden will continue the journey with this topic, which is both a biblical phrase and a book by May Sarton. "Bring Him Home" is our musical feature this week.
April 6 - "Medals or Scars?" - Turning from suffering to salvation, or rather connecting them. What is it that measures our worth to the world? "On My Own" from "Les Mis." The Rev. Fred Wooden speaking.
April 13 - "Hey Ho" - Palm Sunday - Who knew three pop songs would make so much sense today? The simplest and newest is the topic for this week. You gotta be there to find out the other two. "Do You Hear the People Sing?" from "Les Mis." The Rev. Fred Wooden speaking.
April 20 - "A Stitch In Time" - Easter Sunday - After toying with other titles, the best is rather enigmatic. For a hint as to what that means, an anthem sung today has a hint. It says, "Salvation is Created." The Rev. Fred Wooden speaking.
