Sabbath Prayer: Lent Begins.

by Chris Kamalski

Ash WednesdayWe 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?
