We had a great night for Ash Wednesday. This is a refreshing change due to last year's blizzard that caused us to wait for Ash Thursday!
We had a great meal (especially a fruit parfat that was amazing). This year we are following the CPH theme, "Lamb of God, Pure and Holy." We focus our attention on the Lamb and how his atonement takes all of our sins.
Most of all, to remind people of their need for repentance was overshadowed by the great gift of His Body and Blood. They walked up dust, but left resurrected. AWESOME. May this be our meditation throughout Lent. Day 1 of no soda-DONE!
