Intro Week | Day 2
Yesterday, some of us received a cross of ashes on our foreheads. Some of us lined up in flower shops. And some of us stayed home and ate ice cream. But now we are fully in Lent, and we've got a carbon fast to get ready for!

Today, we take our first look at the question, "Why are we doing this?" In today's video, hear from Pastor Danielle why our theme for Lent is "40 Days in the Wilderness with Jesus" and why we decided to do this congregational carbon fast.

And I'm sorry, this one's 5 minutes long, because she had so many great things to say. And . . . because of a brief Ash Wednesday interruption. 


Pastor Danielle explains our theme for Lent and why we're doing a carbon fast. (5 min)
