Today my dear friend and longtime friend of the show Alexander Shaia returns to the podcast.
This time we talk about the benefits & challenges of community & how this led directly to the creation of what we now call Lent, and Ash Wednesday.
Alexander shares more of the history of Ash Wednesday - and the true symbolism behind the use of ashes.
Finally, we look at the pre-atonement concept of Christian spirituality, theosis, and discover the grace, beauty and love which gives it is power.
Alexnader is as wise and challenging as ever - this episode will blow your mind & transform how you experience both Ash Wednesday, Lent, and the passion of the Christ.
