Cornerstones of Faith
In Lent of 2016, St. Martin's and St. Timothy Lutheran Church joined in a program entitled Beyond Our Borders, where we visited churches of various religious backgrounds. This year, we are going to join together again for a series entitled
Cornerstones of Faith: Architecture and its Impact on How We Encounter God. Our 7:00 p.m. meeting on March 8 will begin at St. Timothy and end at St. Martin's. We'll discuss the architecture of our respective buildings and how that informs our faith. On March 15, we meet at the Buffalo Religious Arts Society (formerly St. Francis Xavier Church in Black Rock) to talk about art and architecture. March 22 will be at Corpus Christi Church in Buffalo. St. Paul's Cathedral will be either March 29 or April 5. As we go to press, we still have one other site to nail down. More information will be available in a pamphlet at church.
The annual Lenten Luncheons will begin this season beginning on Wednesday, March 8, noon, at Trinity United Methodist Church. The meal is $5 per person. At about 12:30, there will be a presentation on one of the Fruits of the Spirit (see Galatians 5:22-23). St. Martin's will prepare the lunch and have the presentation on March 15
