Ash Wednesday

I'm shamelessly stealing this from my friends at Cambridge Welcoming Ministries. It was definitely the word that God had for me today and I wanted to share it as I look forward to a long Lenten season, wondering how I am going to keep my own vows and live out my own repentance.

Come, Come Whoever You Are by Mevlana Jelaluddin Runi

Come, come, whoever you are,
Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow

a thousand times
Come, yet again, come, come.
