Wednesday, February 18, Noon, Goddard Chapel

February 18th is the beginning of the Lenten season. Christians all over the world will be gathering with their church communities to mark the start of this year’s journey through the wilderness. On Ash Wednesday, we honor the ancient call to refocus, refine, re-route/re-root ourselves and our spiritual lives. Join us as we begin our path together, walking beside one another and beside our church throughout the world. Lent ties us to that which is unchanging, Lent binds the Christian community to one another and to its beginnings. In the words of Joan Chittister, “[Lent] ties us to the past in a way that enables us to know who we are in the present…It is about reaching back to remember who we are even while we keep on becoming more than we were.” On February 18th, we will sing, we will pray, we will worship and we will tell the stories again. All are welcome and as always, come as you are. Led by Tufts Catholic Chaplain Lynn Cooper and Tufts Protestant Chaplain Chanta Bhan. Please contact them here if you have questions.
