1st Sunday of Lent. This is actually the text the lectionary assigns to Ash Wednesday which was March 1 this year. Ash Wednesday comes and goes in our Presbyterian Reformed Tradition with little recognition. This text however, calls us to keep in mind what Lent is all about. We will think together about the blessings that come with repentance and the context in which those blessings are best experienced.
Reading Joel 2:1-2, 12-17
