Mardi Gras Sunday/LIFT

  • On Sunday, February 23 Plymouth celebrated Mardi Gras, and sang “Alleluia” for the last time before entering the season of Lent.

  • Rev. Eric Jackson preached on the Transfiguration of Jesus.

  • Elisa and Joshua Dekaney and members of Samba Laranja, the Brazilian Ensemble of Syracuse University‚Äôs Setnor School of Music, added some Latino exuberance to our celebration.

  • Samba Laranja led us out of the sanctuary and downstairs…

  • …for a sumptuous Mardi Gras feast.

  • And all engaged in LIFT (Living in Faith Together) where we explored the story of the transfiguration by acting it out.

  • See the cloud come over the Moses, Elijah and Jesus on the mountain!

  • Then we created masks that revealed rather than hid our true selves.

  • Folks of all ages…

  • … enjoyed this creative endeavor.
