Ash Wednesday

Rushed into the local shop last night where I was asked what was going on 'over at the church'.

When I replied that it was Ash Wednesday they looked blankly at me until suddenly one of them smiled and said, "Oh yeah, the stop smoking thing!"

Would have fared much better had I told them it was 'Orange Wednesday' I fear!'

Still, you've got to laugh, haven't you?

On coming into lent I remember a couple of years ago speaking to the Junior Sea cadets and asking them what happened to Jesus during his time in the wilderness. I was amazed to find out that he had been given Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh while he was there.

I went to an evening service. As we hadn't eaten before I went, I stopped at a local chippie on the way home.

Got some strange looks, Nobody said anything, but when I got home realised the large black cross on my forehead might have had something to do with it. :)
