We cover our heads with ash and begin to fast not to show others our faith, but to say that spending time with God is more important to us than our appearance, our diet, or anything else for that matter.


Last Sunday after Epiphany 2013 - The Venerable David Selzer

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Archdeacon David Selzer preaches a sermon about the transfiguration.
