Lent 2011

Lent is a time for contemplation.

This Lent we had a chance to welcome good friends from Bethesda Lutheran Church, Ames Iowa

Ah, the color of Lent is purple.  And, did you know that the word Lent means spring? Spring has sprung in Hong Kong with an abundance of azaleas which love the thin sandy soil of the mountains.

Lenten altar flowers.

Liturgical arts at its best, these plants evoke the disciplines of Lent and Jesus' walk to the cross.

One of my favorite preachers. (okay, I'm biased.  This is my husband.)

New life arising!

Old friends.  Without too much of an emphasis on the "old" part.

Oh yes, and Lent means it's 29 years since we each said, "I will."  And we still do, too :)
