Ash Wednesday

"Remember that thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return." - Genesis 3:19 

Today marks the beginning of Lent - a time of repentance and a time of preparation. Many consider Lent to be a sorrowful counterpoint to Advent, but to my view the reward of Easter and the risen Christ is so very much greater!

My friend and I have created a study on Facebook based on often unused medieval and Renaissance concordances of the Passion according to John. It is titled "Lenten Reflections with James Pepper and Kathy Bowden" - please join us in this thought-provoking series of guided Biblical readings.
