Dear Friend in Christ,
A time to remember and renew.
Yesterday when ashes were placed on our foreheads, we heard the words “Remember that you are dust …” Lent is a time to remember who we really are, that without God our lives are merely dust. With this acknowledgement we can renew our commitment to include God in every detail of our daily lives.
As we begin this journey toward Easter, let us take the time and effort to sincerely examine how we conduct ourselves in dealing with friends and strangers; how generous we are with our possessions; how just we are with co-workers or classmates; how merciful and forgiving we are with those who hurt us.
Let us thank God today for giving meaning and purpose to our lives of dust, and let us begin each day of Lent remembering and renewing our true self.
Have a thankful Thursday and remember to send us your prayer intentions.
