We see the rainbow after the flood. We see the dove descending as Jesus comes up out of the water at his baptism. We see the wild animals and the angels with Jesus in the wilderness this 40 days. What do you see then and there? Now and here?

We will light our Lenten Candles and hear about our Second Mile Lent Offering.
