Friend, in the middle of this busy week, you are invited to pause to observe Ash Wednesday and remember that God made us from fragile, blessed dust and breathes through us the breath of life and love. From dust you were created in God's image and to God's good dust you shall return.
This year, March 6th begins a forty day Lenten journey to discover who we are to be as God's beloved. Lent is an invitation to follow Jesus, God's Beloved Child, bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh, in whom God's image is seen most clearly. Come, pray today for strength and imagination to follow Jesus wherever he will lead.
