All Day Wednesday the weather forecast foretold an oncoming 24 hours of rain with at least 3 - 4 inches expected. Thankfully it would start late Wednesday Night and not interrupt our Ash Wednesday Devotions. As I went in for evening worship the sky was threatening but still no rain.
The service reminds us of the limits of our mortality and frees us from the burden of our sins so that we might live into our lives enjoying the fullness of God’s mercy and grace.
As I exited the building the rain had gently begin to fall as if to complete the washing away of sin and to cleanse my forehead of the sign of my redemption.
