LITURGICAL COLOR: PURPLE and BURLAP
The cross and pulpit paraments are now purple signifying we are in the Season of Lent in the church year. The altar parament is made of burlap, which reminds us of sackcloth, the traditional fabric worn by persons seeking and applying themselves to the work of repentance and renewal. Lent is a 40-day season that reminds of Jesus’ forty days in the wilderness where he was tempted and made his first statements of faith. The color purple is a color of royalty. Our King came to die; from his weakness on the cross we receive our greatest strength in the gift of resurrection.
