It never fails, whether Lent is early or late, it always seems to sneak up on us and this year is no different. So turn off CNN, or MSNBC or FoxNews. Put down the phone and your tablets. Peel yourself away from Facebook and Twitter. Ash Wednesday is here! Well, on March 1st any way.
Perhaps this year of all years, we need to step back and understand our own humanity, to understand our own frailty, to grapple with our broken reality. The recent election has blatantly exposed our divisions and hatreds, but we can only deal with them when we understand our own limits and then seek One who can transcend these limits!
So come out on Wednesday, March 1st at 7:30 pm for our Ash Wednesday Service and be sealed for our Lord.
