I miss being a Catholic

well maybe not. But what I do miss sometimes is the pageantry of mass. The sights and sounds and smells are something that I still remember fondly.

As we begin the Lenten season, I look back to the way I used to go through this time of year as a Catholic and compare it to how many of my brother and sister Methodists go through it now. For many of us we have removed a lot of the solemness, power, and mystery.

This Lent I have made a vow to explore with my church this wonderful season and all the opportunities it presetns to us. My prayer is for the church to begin to reach back and embrace all our traditions and use the power of our traditions to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
