Ash Wednesday 2019

March 6, 2019

And so Lent begins

Is it about giving things up?

Is it about self-mortification?

Is it about penance?

What is it really about?

Lent is a journey, not a destination

A journey of the heart

A journey of the spirit

A journey of discovery

As we take this forty day journey

May the words of the prophet guide us

Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin? Then your light shall break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up quickly… (Isaiah 58:6-8)

May the journey transform us

May the journey bring us to our heart’s home
