Today is Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of the season of Lent – a time of prayer, paring down, confessing, and taking up.
Hi again Beloved,

I know that the threatened snowstorm spells peril for some: lost heat, lost power, and some may even lose their lives. I once served a church where one of the elderly parishioners told me about her husband who walked home, from Dorchester to Jamaica Plain, in the middle of the Blizzard of ’78, to be with his sweetheart. He died of a heart attack when he arrived. Romantic or tragic?
