Into the Shadow of Lent

Photographed here is Saint Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Philadelphia where I participated in a beautiful Ash Wednesday service. I was compelled to embrace something new rather than leave an old habit behind. Gonna be thinking about what that means for the next 40 days. Have a blessed Lenten season.

  1. Interesting you mention “embracing something new rather than leaving an old habit behind.” I’ve participated in a Lenten fast for a few years in a row, but this year I had the same intuition – to add more regular, intentional, directed practices to my day instead of giving up certain pleasures.

    Thanks for pic too –

  2. I wish I weren’t so shallow, lol. I always give up cookies or something for lent. Maybe this year I’ll branch out 🙂 Thanks for the awesome pic. What did you take it with?
