Yes, today we remember that we are dust. But also: Remember you belong to God, and to God you shall return.
This is the first Sunday of Lent, the beginning of a long journey with Jesus. I wonder, could this Lent be an invitation? Could we ask: “Where is your wilderness?” Where can you go to be vulnerable? Where will you face your demons?
Lent is simple, deceptively simple. Lent is about accepting our limits. Lent is about giving up what makes us sad. Faith is about falling in love, and following Jesus.
