Ash Wednesday into Lent

Posted in better disciples at 11:39 PM by alexlozada

As he’s done the last several years,  MCC’s senior pastor Ben Cachiaras (in his most recent e-note) explains MCC’s use of Ash Wednesday and the Lenten season as ways to encourage becoming better disciples. He also links to a Lenten prayer & Bible reading resource for groups (version for individuals , too). My post from last year (including comments from other bloggers) has more on-line resources for the season.

Providentially rescheduled because of the recent snow, today’s MCC monthly all-staff meeting ended with each of us meditatively participating in MCC’s Ash Wednesday event. In the words of teammate Jenny Krichton, “sat my sinful self down in a dimly lit chapel today. Scripture was illuminated about the room. Exposed, cleansed & renewed. Thank you Jesus.”
