Ash Wednesday 2018

IMG-5685

Dear friends in Christ, every year at the time of the Christian Passover we celebrate our redemption through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Lent is a time to prepare for this celebration and to renew our life in the paschal mystery. We begin this holy season by remembering our need for repentance, and for the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We begin our journey to Easter with the sign of ashes, an ancient sign, speaking of the frailty and uncertainty of human life, and marking the penitence of the community as a whole. I invite you therefore, in the name of the Lord, to observe a holy Lent by self-examination, penitence, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, and by reading and meditating on the word of God. Let us kneel before our Creator and Redeemer.

Ash Wednesday 2017

ash-wednesday-2017The Gospel for Ash Wednesday begins with, perhaps, the most Anglican verse, “Beware of practicing your piety before others.”  But Jesus is getting at a lot more than where we pray.

Ash Wednesday, 2013

The lessons for Ash Wednesday can be found by clicking here. I worked with The Exhortation.

“If it ain’t about Jesus, then it ain’t about nothing at all.” With all due apologies to everyone who successfully taught me grammar, it’s worth remembering. Because Lent should be all about Jesus.

(There will be a few moments of silence before the sermon begins. Thank you for your patience.)

Ash Wednesday, 2012

The lessons for Ash Wednesday can be found here. I worked most closely with Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21.

Lent is a time for re-examination and repentance. One tool for helping with this is a Rule of Life. Also I mention funny trivia about Benedict and the Benedictine Rule.

(There will be a few moments of silence before the sermon begins. Thanks for your patience.)
