Day by Day Through Lent: Day Twenty-one
"Those who drink of the water I will give will never be thirsty!"
We have reached the halfway point of our Lenten journey, a path of renewal and reconciliation. As we make the turn into the second half of Lent, some simple words from the ritual of Ash Wednesday, reminding us of why we are doing this:
