Romans 3: 21-31
“Not All the Blood of Beasts” Lutheran Service Book, Hymn 431

Today, we continue with Sola Fide (by faith alone), the second of our weekly Lenten services focusing on The Five Solae (Latin slogans) that emerged during the Reformation to summarize the reformers’ theological convictions about the essentials of Christianity.

The Reformation of the 16th century changed the Christian faith worldwide. Roused to action by the corruption and abuses they saw in the church of the time, Martin Luther spearheaded a movement that transformed Christianity and eventually led to the emergence of the Protestant denominations that exist today. The reformers were guided by the conviction that the church of their day had drifted away from the essential, original teachings of Christianity, especially in regard to what it was teaching about salvation—how people can be forgiven of sin through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and receive eternal life with God. The Reformation sought to re-orient Christianity on the original message of Jesus and the early church.

Ash Wednesday Services

March 01, 2017 at First Saint Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=ECPs17Whm06v184YqxeTdY

Please join us for one or all three Ash Wednesday services on March 1: 7AM, 12N and 7PM.

On Ash Wednesday, those who wish, receive the imposition of ashes. This ancient act is a gesture of repentance and a powerful reminder about the meaning of the day. Ashes can symbolize dust-to-dustness and remind worshipers of the need for cleansing, scrubbing, purifying, and humility.

The use of ashes on Ash Wednesday is a more recent custom among Lutheran congregations although some have done it for decades. The pastor takes the ashes on the end of his thumb and makes the sign of the cross on the forehead of each worshiper, saying these words: “Remember: you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” The sign of the Cross reminds us that our salvation rests in Christ alone, and assurance that we have forgiveness and eternal life through him.

POP at CPC: Print / Organize / Protest

March 05, 2017 at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=E5NDAziupJGsFUmHcER33d

You’re invited to PRINT WITH US.
Postcards/of/Persistence
Print/Organize/Protest
A one day, FREE, hands-on experience at CPC from 12-2pm, Sunday, March 5.
Screenprint your own CPC artist designed postcards and placards, then directly write your legislators with the guidance of Karin McKie and her team of facilitators from Daily Activists, a progressive action smartphone app and website.

PLEASE BRING TO THE EVENT:
8.5 x 11″ cardstock for postcards, 16 x 20″ posterboard, a pen for writing, postcards stamps (34¢), AND a snack to share.

This, our third activist event, will focus on the creation of postcards for #TheIdesOfTrump mailing on March 15, along with other writing campaigns that address a variety of #resist issues. We encourage senders to share their cards on social media with the hashtag #CPCPostcardParty.

CPC has ALWAYS been a SAFE SPACE. For all people, ages, gender, religions, race, and background. We invite you to gather in our shop to celebrate DIVERSITY and COMMUNITY. Historically, printmaking has been a democratic medium; a way to get the word out, a celebration of free speech. CPC, in solidarity with other print shops around the country, is opening its doors in the name of INCLUSION. So many people are feeling frustrated, disappointed and afraid, and they are no longer able to find
political catharsis in signing petitions or donating money. I think we are entering a moment where passive participation no longer soothes, and people are ready to come together, if just to voice their fears and unify through the act of making.

CPC artists have created a variety of postcard and poster images that can be screen printed on whatever you bring to print on. Choose whatever you want to print, and we’ll show you how to do it! Please note that we will NOT be printing t-shirts at this event.

We’ll provide the inks and screens and other stuff, just keep in mind we’re not able to switch out ink colors once we’ve started. We’re looking forward to having you join us!

DailyActivists Communication Coordinator Karin McKie said, “Our smartphone app and website are pleased to bring our digital activism to the proud tradition of print protests. We’re also honored to showcase the prodigious talents of Chicagoland artists in making our voices heard during this time when our democracy is threatened. We hope our passionate community will join us for this boots-on-the-ground and anger-into-action celebration of free speech and advocacy. No matter the obstacles, we persist.”
