Week of Ash Wednesday

Lift Up Your Voice Like a Trumpet:  Abundance in Creation

Today we begin our pilgrimage through the weekdays of Lent as we explore the theme of “Repairing the Breach: Discipleship and Mission in the Global Economy.” In the meditations that follow for Ash Wednesday, and the Thursday and Friday following, we introduce a crucial theme for this series, one that is part and parcel of the doctrine of creation—that God’s original intention is that the earth and all who dwell therein might have life abundant and live in harmony with one another and the whole created order.
