A message from Brother Jaimie Alexander

Dear FUMC Bella Vista,
In Lent, it's traditional to give up (or 'fast from') something(s) that we do a lot of and that we find pleasure in. This giving up or fasting is done as a discipline for learning self-control, to free our minds from the chase after material things, to tell ourselves 'no' and make it stick; to identify with Christ's sufferings, and remember what the true pleasures are for followers of Christ; as an act of sorrow over our wrongdoings and our state of sin.
Lent is not all about giving things up. It's also about adding good things to our lives or to others' lives -- the kind of good things that follow on what Jesus asks of us, especially that which relates to what we're giving up. Try these:
Reconcile yourself to someone you don't like, or even hate or did something bad to, or just intentionally stayed away from.
Do acts of kindness for people, just because the opportunity's there; give them little tastes of God's love.
If you haven't taken the time lately to be in a refreshing, natural spot, do so.
Study, meditate, and pray over one or two Bible passages for each day. Read the Daily Devotional Booklet “What a Difference a Day Makes!”. Copies are available in the narthex or Becker Hall or receive by email.
Think upon something ordinary that you do every day, and think about God while doing it, in a way that ties into what you're doing. Or think of a place you come to regularly, and each time think where Christ might be in this place, what Christ might do there, or what you might be led to do for Christ.
Attend special Lenten worship services.
Wednesday Weekly Lenten services are being held in the Sanctuary from 11:45 am to 12:15 am followed by a light lunch hosted by different United Methodist Women Circles each week.
There will also be special Lenten services during Holy Week( March 29th thru April 5th).

Bro. Jaimie
