The morning after Ash Wednesday

I've argued that Ash Wednesday–like any feast day, celebration, etc. on the Church calendar–provides an opportunity to connect with our communities, to make meaning out of the monotony of everyday life. Here's an article we published at work last year with some ideas:
"As we moved into the Lenten season the resounding question from across the diocese was, “What next?” It has increasingly become clear that this annual effort is only the beginning for many congregations. This experience of being with, and touching, our neighbors has increased our desire to be present with our communities, share our traditions–indeed, share the Good News!–and make the Church more accessible to the spiritual seekers we are surrounded by."
Read the rest and share your thoughts!
