It's been a couple of weeks since I last blogged. Kind of distracted and busy and at a loss for things to say. I just had a plateful of pancakes and sausages at the church's annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. Always a hearty good time, that's proably better for the 'feeling' heart than the physical one.
Coming from a relatively-non-liturgical tradition, the impact of the last day before Lent is lost on many people. That's alright, because one day of a focus on the abundance of God's grace in our lives is not the goal. Each day we are living in that grace, regardless of the date on the calendar or the colour of the banners in the sanctuary.
