As I write this, it’s just a few minutes after midnight, and Ash Wednesday is now past. I still haven’t washed the ashes off my forehead, but I’ve smudged them pretty well over the course of the day. (I should probably go to bed.)
We’re starting our Lent kind of slowly, since this Sunday is a fourth Sunday and we’re not going to be gathering at Jammin’ Java. However, a bunch of us are planning to go to the Taizé Contemplative Worship with Healing Rite at the Church of the Holy Comforter in Vienna at 5pm on Sunday. We’d love for you to join us!
Another group is starting regular Friday gatherings during Lent to talk about spiritual formation and how we can become more like Jesus. They will be watching a DVD resource by Dallas Willard and sharing their own ideas about growth and transformation each Friday evening at 7:30pm in Falls Church. Contact us for more information.
Other than that, I guess I’d just just like to wish you a Lenten journey that’s powerful and transforming. Hope we get to walk some of it together.
