Ash Wednesday

February 22nd, 2012 · 4 Comments · Family, Holidays

Hello Friends! Today is Ash Wednesday, the start of the Lenten period when we Christians prepare our hearts for Easter. We repent our sins and focus on our relationships with God. Today our church offered two services, one at noon and one at 7pm. We were lucky enough that Troy was able to get off at Lunch time and we went at noon. We worship at Aiea United Methodist Church. Jordan was baptized here and we’ve been members for about 6 years now. Our church hosts an English congregation, a Samoan congregation and a Korean congregation. We have a mixture of local and military families and feel like it is just the right place for us to be. If you don’t have a church home and you live on Oahu, I’d love to invite you to join us one Sunday. If you don’t have a church home but are interested in finding one, I encourage you to make the effort now, don’t put it off until later!

Thanks for stopping by!
Love Love and Blog you Later,
