Sermon: Expect the End of the World
"See, now is an acceptable time; see, now is a day of salvation!” In the frenzy of our daily lives, the urgency of Paul’s invitation to be reconciled to God can strike us as odd, intrusive even. There is so much to do…can’t that wait? Ash Wednesday is an invitation to intrusion, to stillness, and most of all to freedom. It’s a reminder of the fragile, precious passage of our lives. Join us at 7pm for a traditional service of the Imposition of Ashes — an ancient rite of repentance and preparation for our long lenten pilgrimage to the cross.
