Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the 40 day period known as Lent. Tod Bolsinger has some insight on the meaning of Ash Wednesday and encourages Christians to begin to observe Lent. This is the first of a series of posts Tod will be doing on Lent.
I confess that I've never really made it a habit to observe Ash Wednesday or Lent. However, if I was in San Clemente today, I'd be at Tod's church observing the day with them.
Mark at Stones Cry Out has collected some other interesting links on Ash Wednesday and Lent.
