Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent for Western Christian churches. Lent begins with the marking of ashes, a sign to remind us to live the way Jesus wants. Lent ends after 40 days when Jesus rises from the dead at Easter. It is a special time when God invites us to go without so that others may share of the gifts of Creation. Lent is about doing good things for others. It is a time to take action so that others may have life.
