Happy Ash Wednesday

I thought this short video clip expressed a joyful approach to Lent and I liked the fact that the Archbishop ties this liturgical season to nature's changing seasons. I found a caterpillar/butterfly analogy about Lent last week when researching ideas for introducing it to our First Grade Religious Ed class (which has grown to 30 children!); looking at Lent as a time of change really does evoke beautiful images. We used the caterpillar's metamorphosis as part of our classroom discussion and even brought in the Painted Lady caterpillars from one of K's science classes as visual demonstration.

What are you doing to change during this Lenten season?
