“Sharing our Shrove Tuesday doings, beloveds! Pray yours was sweet and filled with joy.“
We come together.
Usher in this season of Lent; ache to shed our excess.
Tonight, we feast.
We feast on the sweets of abundance; drinking in laughter and offering what we hold in our hands.
For tomorrow we will don the garb of mourning, let ashes crown our glory.
But tonight, we celebrate the great blessings he has given us.
“Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’ The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” (Psalm 126:2-3)
