Tonight, we will use up the pancakes left over from yesterday as we share communion. We won't use ash from last year's palm crosses burned down but from a packet. We will read the words in Matthew 6 that speak of Jesus admonition about making our piety public so that others will take notice.
It all seems rather confused and jumbled and, dare I say it, incongruous.
But we rely on the God of the wilderness to lead us in sincerity on our journey to holiness and to bring us from emptiness to fulness, nourishing and sustaining us along the way.
And so, Lent begins.
