Jesus holds up the practice of the faithful believer: to give alms, to pray, to fast. The sign of the cross, the dark mark made by ashes, is the very same sign that was made in oil at the time of our baptism. May each of us keep a Holy Lent, striving to fulfil our baptismal covenant - Patricia Kay Jue, lay preacher
"...each of us can remember a moment when we knew we were in sacred space- a moment or a place where we experienced a glimpse of grace, a glimpse of the love and power of God. We...should remember the moments. We need them to sustain us through the difficult times." -The Rev. Kathy Major
"One light. A dash of salt. One person can make all the difference. We will each have times when we're the first light, the first ray of hope. And we will each have times when we need someone else to provide the first light, the first thawing, so that we can get our bearings." - The Rev. Kathy Major
"And G-d calls us out of ourselves and our comfortable lives into new work every so often- confident that we will be able to accomplish whatever it is that needs doing, because G-d knows who we are and the gifts we have to give, even though we might not see it or agree." - The Rev. Kathy Major
