Pastor's Corner: Facing death's limit in Lent
Last updated 2/26/2021 at 7:27am
We started the season of Lent with a meditation on mortality (Ash Wednesday - Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return), and we end the season on a day also about death (Good Friday, when Christ is crucified). Lent is bookended by death. This year, Lent is also a time of remembering what I'm calling "COVID Anniversaries." A year ago, the lockdown started ... a year ago, the death toll started rising ... a year ago, our lives as we knew them ended. Even without Lent, March holds many memories of the shock and suddenness of the pandemic and of death's long, cold reach.
