Lutheran and United Methodist pastors worked together to provide "Ashes to Go," a mobile Ash Wednesday service, to residents too busy to attend formal church services.
Motorists on their way to and from work or perhaps running errands Wednesday morning were able to do some multi-tasking without planning for it. Thanks to a collaboration between New Light Lutheran and Lodge Forest and Patapsco United Methodist churches, motorists too busy to attend Ash Wednesday services were still able to receive ashes on the first day of Lent. "This morning, I ran out to a couple of drivers stopped in traffic," the Rev. Bonnie McCubbin said Wednesday afternoon. "They didn't even have to get out of their cars." McCubbin, pastor of Lodge Forest and Patapsco, and the Rev. Kristi Kunkel, pastor of New Light Lutheran, offered the mobile ash service as a way of reaching out to community members who either don't belong to a …

Rule #1: You can’t give up something you already dislike.
It's week and a half past Ash Wednesday and since it is without question most of you have long ago broken the empty promises of your New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to get ready for Easter and more broken promises and self-esteem killing. It’s the Lenten Season. As previously stated in this column, I don’t make resolutions. I learned about the futility of making them during Sunday school at St. Luke’s Catholic Church in the old town of Sparrows Point, specifically during the period of the liturgical year known as Lent. For Lent you have to give up something, making it similar to a New Year’s resolution except it is (hopefully) done in a relative state of sobriety.
