today, ash wednesday, marks the start of a period of time the christian church calls 'lent'.
the filey parish website will be marking this significant season by blogging everyday. we'll be following themes for the next six weeks, with blogging starting for real on sunday, the next few days we'll be introducing the themes and unpacking them a little.
you can expect poems, pictures, stories, challenges, thoughts, comments and reactions. we're all looking forward to seeing what the next 40 days or so brings. we hope you join us for this journey and participate using the comments feature on this site.
if you'd like to explore lent with people face to face, the church is hosting a number of study groups meeting through march, details here on the parish web site events pages.
