Ash Wednesday Thoughts

Lent begins early this year.  It seems we have just put away the tree, the ornaments, and the wrapping paper and already it’s time to receive ashes on our foreheads!  We come once again to this sacred, earthy season of Lent, where we remember that it is from dust and earth from which we emerge and one day we shall…
