The Christian tradition marks the coming of the high holy day of Easter with a season of preparation. For the 40 days before Easter people who follow Jesus prepare themselves spiritually for what is to come. We start the season by marking ourselves with ashes, and reminding ourselves that we are dust and to dust we shall return.
The Abundant Harvest joined St. Isidore again today as they held their annual Commuter Church. Finding an empty lot on a busy street, we parked the truck. Big signs informed people that there was Ashes, Prayer, and Breakfast.
