Ash Wednesday: Leave Your Pot on the Fire

Bishop Laurie begins the season of Lent with a video for Ash Wednesday, “Leave Your Pot on the Fire.”
Introduction: “The ashes of Ash Wednesday not only symbolize sorrow over our personal sin, but they are also a sign of protest over the presence of evil in our world – individual evil, corporate evil, and systemic evil. In the same way, when you and I pursue spiritual disciplines during Lent, the sacrifices that we make are not done just for us, they are done for the sake of others, those who are oppressed and downtrodden, hopeless and helpless, and those who are living in distress and despair,” said Bishop Laurie Haller
