Sabbath Prayer: Lent Begins.
by Chris Kamalski
We observed Ash Wednesday this past week as a community, with many of us attending a service at the local Catholic parish in Pretoria. This portion of the Ash Wednesday liturgy has always struck me deeply:
Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the
earth: Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our
mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is
only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
More on our Lenten Journey as a community this week (in fact, more blogging in general finally!), but for now, a question:
How are you observing this season of preparation as an individual or community?
