I have always been a Methodist and never even did Ash Wednesday services until I moved to FL. I really love the meaning of that service and I am glad to be able to participate in it now.
As for giving something up for Lent--I have done it many times in the past. Will see what I feel led to do this year.
I have three kids who are Catholic and as far as I know my two girls go to churches where they do not require you to deny during Lent. But my son in VA does believe very strongly in the denial part of Lent.
I like what your church does Mary. That is something I am going to pray about doing this year. So many are in need. I have a friend on another team and she does enormous amounts of work for the needy through her Catholic church in DL. Your dear Grandmother must have been something else~~I can picture this dear Irish lady with spark in her eyes.
This is sure a chatty thread. I love it!! We are all so very different and yet we are united in our journey to get healthy. Let's go team.
Have a wonderful day everyone.
