The 40 days of Lent are soon to be upon us. Ash Wednesday is on Valentine’s Day. Yes, I am asking you to postpone or go a day early to celebrate your love, so that you can come and experience a Valentine meal with the community of faith. We are having heart healthy soup, Valentine’s Day decorations, and we will be marked with the greatest gift of love. The cross of Jesus Christ in the form of an ashen cross on our foreheads.
Everyone needs to experience God’s love that is revealed during our difficult journey on the road that leads to life.
Each Wednesday during Lent, except the Wednesday during Holy week, we gather at 6:00 pm for a meal and 7:00 pm for Holden Evening prayer. Let us experience God’s grace that comes to us on our hard road, which gives us life.
