Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Today we remember that we are mortal. Today we remember that we are wholly dependent upon God. Today we remember our need to repent, and our need for grace. Today is not about being morbid, but about being honest with ourselves. Today we take our first step in our Lenten journey, a journey which leads to the cross and ultimately the resurrection. May your Lenten journey be blessed.
Remember: “You are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Genesis 3:19
