Every once in a while, dates line up just right, and that is what happened this year. Ash Wednesday just happens to land on Valentine’s Day, and Easter lands on April Fool’s day. Put those together and what you get is FOOLISH LOVE! That is exactly what God has showed us over and over again, FOOLISH, Absurd, Nonsensical, Unexpected LOVE! That is precisely what Jesus offers to us even today: the greatest April Fools Day ever! Join us starting February 14th for Ash Wednesday, and then the Sundays of Lent through Easter as we come face to face with God’s FOOLISH LOVE: Not as the World Gives.
I know very well how foolish it sounds to those who are lost, when they hear that Jesus died to save them. But we who are saved recognize this message as the very power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18 (TLB).
