ash wednesday

Lent is upon us, we no sooner settle down from celebrating the birth of Jesus before we begin to think about his death. 

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, and we begin by stopping to ponder our own humanity and mortality.  Sounds a bit creepy to some but we seem to need some sort of remembrance that we will one day stand at the door to eternity, and we will leave this place with nothing more than we brought in – with the exception of God’s mercy and Grace, God’s forgiveness and God’s peace.

Peace
