Lenten Journey

Welcome to the season of Lent!  The church season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on March 9 and ends with the Great Vigil of Easter. It covers forty days (forty-six if we include Sundays) as preparation for the greater fifty-day season of Easter.  To see my Ash Wednesday sermon preached at All Souls' Parish, Berkeley follow the link  "Memento mori" (remember that you are going to die) is the meditation theme of this sermon.  Sounds morbid?  Maybe it really is life-giving!
