Fawkes Ash Wednesday

 

Ash Wednesday is a reminder that we all have a Phoenix inside us. Periodically we need to be consumed by an inferno that burns away everything temporary and fleeting.

And then in time we reemerge from the ashes, new, fresh and ready to take on the world.

 

 

 

 

Yet at this stage we may be frail and vulnerable, needing the nurture and care of mentors and a community that provide safe space in which to try our wings.

In the process we may even discover that our tears have cleansing and healing powers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ash Wednesday Reset

'Do you need a personal Reset? I'll be offering a blessing and imposition of Ashes at 1:30pm in the Inspiration Room.
I'll also be on the West End Dart Platform around 12:30pm offering ashes to passers by.
If you can't make it and want to talk, PM me.

Ash Wednesday begins the 40 day season of Lent, a time of personal renewal, like a Reset Button for your life.

This is an opportunity to identify and name the brokenness in your life – either resulting from your own choices and disordered desires or things that others have done to you.

We will be inviting people to receive ashes as a tangible and
visceral reminder that we can turn around and move in another direction (repent) and that we can have a fresh start. Here’s the schedule for Wednesday 2/10/16

+ 9:30 am @ North Park Center Corner Bakery,
La Madeline & Bread Winners
+ 11:00 am @ White Rock Court Assisted Living
+ 12:00 pm @ The Mix Coworking
+ 1:45 pm @ St. Paul’s Church, UCC
+ 3:30 pm @ The Grove, Dallas Coworking
+ 5:30 pm @ The West End Dart Rail Station
+ 7:00 pm @ St. Paul’s Church, UCC

If you can’t make it and want to talk, PM me.

Whether you are able to attend a service or not, I invite you to experience this virtual Ash Wednesday:

If you find this week, or any time in the near future, that you need or want to talk about your own desire for transformation, for letting go of pain and brokenness and moving forward into health and wholeness, please let me know.
