Reflecting on Lent... from around the world!!

You know when someone has one of those really good ideas and you think to yourself, “Of course that’s what we’re going to do.  There really is no other option.”  Well that is what happened with Julie Burd presented the idea of a YASC Lenten reflection blog to this year’s YASC group. 

This is how it works.  Every day one of the YASCers writes a reflection based on that day’s lectionary reading.  Their reflection is posted on the blog that Ashley Cameron has created.  People from all over the world read it.  They gain a little insight into the minds and lives of the YASCer who created it.  Hopefully they close the browser window a little bit different.  I’m not saying we’re miracle workers, but I know we would all love it if even one person is challenged, moved, or relates to something we say. 

As with any blog, there is the option to subscribe via email to get the reflections posted to your inbox every day.  You can also leave a comment if you feel so moved.  I know we would all appreciate it if you were to spread the word and share with your friends. 

So far you can find a post about some of the YASCers and their Ash Wednesday services/celebrations.  The few photos really give you a global view.  There is also a reflection by myself and WillBryant in Hong Kong.  Later today BeckyGleason in Honduras will add her wisdom.  I am overwhelmed by the cool that this is!

Check it out!!  I've added a page with the introduction so you can find it easily.  Just click on the YASC Lenten Reflections tab above.  You can also click on this link and it will take you right to the blog, or you could type into your address bar.  Lots of ways to make it easy!
Got Ashed!
