Over the past four weeks of Lent I’ve been exploring the idea that the purpose of Lent is to prepare us to celebrate Easter. It’s meant to help us develop our appreciation for and our ability to truly celebrate God’s victory over sin and death through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
To help us on this journey we’ll be taking a closer look this Sunday at an event that took place in the life of Jesus and some of his closest friends just days before his arrest and crucifixion. But the event we’ll be looking at wasn’t a miracle or a supernatural revelation or a sermon preached to a crowd of thousands. The event we’ll be looking at was a dinner party.
It was supposed to be a nice meal with friends and family given in honour of Jesus. It ends up being something of a disaster as the party is derailed by personal agendas and thinly vailed rivalries between Jesus’ friends. In the midst of this dinner party disaster, however, Jesus offers his followers, then and now, a poignant reminder of the importance of not taking Jesus’ presence for granted.
If you want to read ahead in preparation for Sunday, the story can be found in the gospel of John 12:1-8. As you read, consider Jesus’ words to his friends and how they might apply to some of the dynamics in our lives that may limit our ability to truly celebrate in honour of Jesus.
I hope we get to celebrate together on Sunday.

Hampton Food Basket
Arrangement is in place for people to give donations on a monthly basis to the Food Basket through Canada Helps; this convenient method allows folk to commit any amount, large or small, on a monthly basis and the Food Basket receives a cheque for said amount. For many, a small amount each month is hardly noticed, $10.00 a month will result in a tax receipt at year’s end of $120.00 and will benefit the donor as well as providing much needed help for those living in poverty.

“Memory Cafe Everyone is welcome to join us at the Memory Cafe to be held on Sunday, March 13 at St Paul’s Church Hall, 4 Church Ave, Rothesay, NB, from 2-4 pm. We will be enjoying a social time with refreshments, an information session with Shelley Shillington about ‘Cycling Without Age’ and entertainment by the Recycled Teenagers. It is a great outing for those who have the disability of dementia, and it is a program of the Alzheimer’s Society provided free of charge.”
Dementia is a progressive disease characterized by symptoms that range from mild memory loss to severe cognitive difficulties, which make it hard to manage daily activities without help. No matter what the stage, dementia can be terrifying and difficult to accept.
However, letting people know what is going on with you can help them understand why you’re acting in new and unexpected ways. Sharing your diagnosis, particularly with those closest to you, also allows everyone to talk about the future, help you maintain the healthiest lifestyle possible, and resolve any stigma before you lose the ability to voice your opinion.
