GROWING A RULE OF LIFE
Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
Religious experience is by nature paradoxical. God promises to keep us safe, but God also calls us to go forth beyond our comfort zones. God shelters us in the earth, but God also asks us to grow. Lent is the season during which we do the work of growing.
The picture banner shows a tree in my neighborhood. During Epiphany, its branches are bare, allowing us the comfort of seeing clearly. On Ash Wednesday, it begins to bloom, reminding us that life is both more complicated and more beautiful than we dared dream.
The color of Lent is purple: the robes of royalty and the cloak of the penitent.
Come join us as we walk on the wild side with Jesus. Our stories during Lent include, Temptation, Prophets, Fig Trees and Crashing Towers, The Prodigal Son and Mary's Anointing of Jesus feet for his journey to Everlasting Life.

Make St. Aidan's Your House of Prayer
Set in a small town in the heart of Nature, St. Aidan’s is unlike any church you’ve ever been to. It is less service than conversation, a moment where head and heart take flight, a chance to renew, not bound by the duties, but in the beauties of holiness. We are small, informal, respectful, lyrical. We explore the mysteries, changes, chances and lessons of life and listen for the voice of the Divine. We listen to the teachings of Jesus as one who understood this life and we share the Holy Eucharist in gratitude. All are welcome to our table. All are invited to participate in our conversation. You may come in for five minutes or the whole thing.
It's a great way to start your day in the wilderness or by the sea.
