A blessed and peaceful Lent to all



As we look forward to Easter (Pascha), don't think about bacon. Or candy. Or... Well, good luck, everybody.

1. We will have a peace vigil at our church on Wednesday morning and every Wednesday

after that throughout Lent and hopefully beyond as long as there is interest.
Peace and blessings to all.

4. Thank you, Shenmue. Peace -doesn't that sound like something to pine for.

Lent and denial. - I've never been very good at the denial part. I usually forget and break down very quickly, just like with New Year's resolutions.
I tell myself I'll do the positive stuff, rather than denial.
Not so great at that either.
Old habits die hard.
