1. This week's Hodgepodge lands on Ash Wednesday which signals the beginning of Lent. Do you mark this season in some way? No, not usually. If so tell us more. Did you grow up 'celebrating' Lent? No Is attending church part of your weekly routine? Yes, it is. My husband is my pastor. Are churches open for in-person worship where you live? Some are and some are not. We are a very small congregation so we have no trouble social distancing and most wear masks. We meet on Sunday morning and Sunday evening and our Wednesday night Bible Study is live on FB and then posted to our YouTube page.
