What is My Purpose?

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday.  I have never, specifically, “observed” Ash Wednesday in the traditional sense of receiving an ash cross or observing Lent.  However, I certainly think it is wise to turn our hearts and thoughts toward Easter.  We do not reflect on the cross – and God’s gift given to us there – nearly… Read More What is My Purpose?
