Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. Take time to focus on your relationship with God. Take time to offer your time to others. Take on a new spiritual discipline. Give up a bad habit. But do these things NOT as temporary, but to GAIN a new holy habit.
March 6th is Ash Wednesday. I will be offering ashes 10-11 by the Farmer's market, 11-12 in the sanctuary, and at a short worship service beginning at 6:30 and ending by 7:00.
