February 2015

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

It seems like only yesterday that we took down the tree and all the Christmas decorations. And so it is a bit jarring to consider that Lent will be upon us before we know it! Ash Wednesday falls on February 18th this year, and in order to give everyone an opportunity for starting off with a Holy Lent, we will be offering four services throughout that day, at 7 am, noon, 4:30 and 7:30 pm. The five Wednesdays following, we will continue through the season with our series of Lenten potlucks (6:30 pm), Studies (7:10 pm) and Services (8 pm).

Before we get to Lent, however, we still have a few other goings on, including the launch of our Adult Inquirers' and Confirmation classes (Feb 1), the Super Bowl party for our Young People (Feb 1), our Chili Cookoff (Feb 7, 6 pm), the George Washington Service, Breakfast and Address at 8 am on Presidents' Day (Feb 16).and our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper (Feb 17, 5-7 pm). Later in the month, the Martha Guild will be sponsoring the Happy Hats workshop (Feb 28, 10 am).

In this month's Post, the Rector writes about George Washington as Christian social worker, serving as an example for us today. Reed Heddleston offers his first Sr. Warden's Report about how the vestry decided to apportion the recent bequests, as well as other vestry discussions.

Elsewhere, Linda Egan writes about reflective Lenten music, while Don Brownlee reports on some recent consecrations in the Church of England.

Read about these items, and much, much, more in this month's EPost!
