    “Ash Wednesday 2020”
    Ash Wednesday - February 26, 2020
    Pastor Bob Lehner
    Readings: Psalm 51, 2 Corinthians 5:20-6:10, Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21
    On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of fasting and repentance.  Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the earth.  At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads at baptism.  While we journey through Lent to return to God, we have already been reconciled to God through Christ.  We humbly pray for God to make our hearts clean while we rejoice that “now is the day of salvation.”  Returning to our baptismal call, we more intentionally bear the fruits of mercy and justice in the world.

    The Message by Rev. Riz Prakasim
    Reverend Riz Prakasim was born in South Africa and came to the United States as a refugee from apartheid when he was 5 years old. He grew up in Princeton, NJ, and although he was good in the house, he was a prodigal son outside and was known to cause a ruckus and a stink. Exiled from NJ when he was 16, he moved into the country in rural MN in 1993, where his prodigal ways were amplified. During his studies at the University of Minnesota, he became associated with a gang and soon found himself in jail. The love and mercy of God poured into his life through miraculous circumstances, and eventually Riz went to Luther Seminary and became a second-generation Presbyterian pastor in the PCUSA when he was ordained in 2012. After serving at his first call at Knox Presbyterian Church, God led Knox to merge with North Como Presbyterian Church to form New Life Church of which Riz is the pastor today. He recently participated in the Ecumenical Center for Clergy Spiritual Renewal's cohort along with Pastor Chris.
