New Window Display Entitled “Confess” Prompts Us to Reframe Lent

Feb 16, 2024

Contrary to popular opinion, Lent is not about giving things up or feeling badly about ourselves. It’s a chance to be honest. To be genuine. To be real. To pay attention to how we’re spending our lives. Where do we invest our heart and our time? Lent always begins with the words of Ash Wednesday: “You are dust and to dust you shall return.” We start with the basic truth that we’re all mortal. This year Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day fell on the same day. It’s a strange coincidence. Both days ask where our heart is… Lent is an opportunity to think about our answer. Where is yours?
