On Ash Wednesday this year, Dan Beirne preached this sermon to help us enter into Lent….
“Tonight, I would like to talk about fasting.
But, fasting in a different light than we are used to….
A fast is an opportunity to merge our lives back into a reality in which we are more aware of what we have and don’t have… Increasing both our gratitude and our experience of God’s goodness in our lives.
So, today, I do not want to talk about the fast I’m going to do,
Nor are we going to talk about the fast that you “should” do.
Rather, we are going to talk about the Communal Fast that we are going to do as one community of faith, together with several other churches, walking as one neighborhood. One body of Christ.
But first, a story.”
