One of the area sea chaplains just stopped by the church looking for ashes. I couldn't offer him ashes but sent him off with palms to burn. Fire is healthy. And then, we got to chatting about ministry on ships. And I AM GOING TO GET GO ON BOARD! I don't know why this excites me so much. Maybe because my grandfather was a sea captain. But who cares? I get to go minister to the seafarers and friends. Woo hoo!
Happy Lent to me.
