Dear Friends and Members of Ark and Dove,
 
Late Sunday night, at the senior high lock-in, we held a "Chopped" competition. The youth were divided into two teams. Each team was given the same ingredients, of which they were to make a meal. Among the ingredients was SPAM, sardines, seaweed, and raisins. They had 30 minutes. Here are the results:
 
 
One of our youth leaders, Cassius, was the judge.
 
I will only say that Cassius was sick by the early hours of the morning. I am not assigning any blame.
 
Another food competition is coming your way. On March 5, we are having our annual Shrove Tuesday pancake dinner at 6:30 pm. All are welcome. This is a fun family event. Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday is the day to pack in a last hearty meal before Lenten fasting begins. At the dinner, we are having a pancake flipping competition. You won't want to miss this. Please contact Nicole Howe, our Outreach and Connections Elder, if you would like to contribute to the fun (nicolehowe123@gmail.com).
 
Following Shrove Tuesday, I invite you to join us to mark the Lenten season with our Ash Wednesday service at 7 pm. During Lent, we are focusing on deepening the prayer life. Please pick up Martin Laird's Into the Silent Land or buy a copy from me. You can also join one of many small groups. Small groups begin the week of March 10. Please contact your small groups leader, or let me know if you have any questions.
 
Peace,
Jon
