Ash Wednesday-14th February

Let us turn in heart and mind, in will and expectancy, to God…

Let us recognise Love in every human being, above all in Jesus, revealing in flesh and blood, in word and deed, the heart of God…

Let our attention, our questions, our living, all be focused on the God whose love is utterly truthful, shimmeringly joyous, profoundly pain-transforming and life-enhancing; embracing all that would cause harm, never letting go, pressing gently and for as long as need be into all that refuses to respond, never ultimately excluding, banishing, or destroying that which is still being created. Amen.

With these deeply consoling words from Jim Cotter, and our gaze fixed on God, let us enter into the wide and spacious wilderness of Lent.
