From Rev. Ellen Jennings
Well, it appears the groundhog was right! Winter does not seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon… Thus, I pray that you are warm and snug, and I ask that you please call the DC Shelter Hotline at 1-800-535-7252 if you see a person who does not seem to have a warm place to go.
Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, that forty-day season of preparation before the joyous celebration of Easter. CONTINUE READING
