Splurging on Fat Tuesday

Decisions, Decisions! What are you giving up for Lent? Or are you taking on some discipline? Today is the last day to think about that. Ash Wednesday will be here in less than eighteen hours. At the Episcopal Church of Our Savior at Honey Creek, we are offering a 7:00 a.m. Ash Wednesday service tomorrow. This will get you off to a good start.
Tomorrow we will be invited, "in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word."

We have not officially "launched" the church yet -- that is coming in the fall of this year. Right now, so few people know about the church that it would not be fair to the community to begin having regularly scheduled services. We want everyone to have a fair chance to be a charter member, but from time to time we will have services that will be publicized.

So, today, please make plans to attend the service tomorrow morning. Today, decide about your Lenten discipline. Some people give up chocolate. If Chocolate comes between you and God, then by all means give it up. If you decide to give up chocolate, there will be no fudging after tomorrow.
