The good news of the gospel is that we encounter God’s salvation in embodied ways— in our body’s ability to perceive familiar realties and interpret new ones. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday - a stark liturgical reminder we are dust. It ends during a holy week of alabaster jars, cool water on weary feet, and the bittersweet taste of wine at the last supper. Join us on this Lenten journey as we consider together who we are and how we encounter an incarnate God through our senses.
