Moving Out of the Shadows - Ash Wednesday

Bishop Bruce R. Ough delivers an Ash Wednesday 2017 message entitles, "Moving out of the Shadows". In it, he describes how we, like Nicodemus, harbor our own forms of unwillingness to change, to be born anew, to embrace the resurrection of the Son of God. He says, "Our Lenten journey, the very journey we are entering into, is one of moving out of the darkness of sin and the shadows of doubt into new life in Christ – 'birth from above' – as Jesus said."
