Remembering that we are going to die changes the way we live and allows us to receive life as a gift, this moment as a gift, but also hopefully allows us to live in ways that are in light of eternity.Tish Harrison Warren
This episode begins by defining the meaning of Lent and how it is significant to the Christian faith. Tish shares how lent is a time of preparation and recognition of sin as we look forward to the day of our redemption on Easter. Our conversation also touches specifically on Ash Wednesday and how it touches on the reality that we will all one day die but also serves as a reminder to look to Jesus as our hope. Tish shares that it is important for the church to talk about hard truths and have conversations around some of the harsh realities of life.
