Ash Wednesday today And lent begins.
We start the slow walk towards the cross, and all that it means for us.
We consider our own lives and our own choices. We dare look inside ourselves and see what is there.
And we move to the place of prayer, to confess and to name our sins.
And we repent, to confess and receive forgiveness for the things that we do or the things that we do not do.
We turn in new directions journeying towards the hope of the cross.
Let us begin the inner journey, towards forgiveness and healing and life.
Let us go to the cross.
