CALVARY’S FIRST NOONDAY LENTEN SERVICE took place in a downtown theater 98 years ago. It would be another six years before the first plates of waffles, chicken hash, and fish pudding brought the Waffle Shop into being. In the decades since, in peacetime and war, booms and depressions, moon landings and struggles for civil rights and all the events that have shaped our common life in Memphis, Lenten Preaching Series preachers have spoken truthfully, hopefully, and prophetically to the world as it is, and to our lives as they are. They have nourished us when we’ve been depleted, and challenged us to be God’s agents of healing, justice, and mercy in a world that has always needed much more of all three. A global pandemic hasn’t lessened those needs. And LPS will go on in 2021, adapting and speaking, as it always has, to the times. We hope you’ll join us.
