T.S. Eliot once wrote, “What we call the beginning is often the end and to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”
On Ash Wednesday, March 6, in services at noon and 6 PM, we will gather in the Advocate Chapel, to remember our mortality — that we are dust, and to dust we shall return. We will also mark the beginning of our Lenten journey, the forty day season of our preparation for the holiest days of the Christian year – Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday. In so doing, we will anticipate – however paradoxically – the end of our Lenten journey even as it begins.
From that ending, we make our beginning, together as people of faith.
Come be a part of the journey.
