March 2 Wednesday NEW MOON coincides with Ash Wednesday.
With ashes as a symbol, this is the day Christians are invited to reflect on what some call the “bright sadness” of Lent: that Lent is not about dwelling in guilt for missteps, but rather, it is a time for clearing and releasing, so to enter fully into the present moment, full of vibrant life. During the season of Lent, which begins with Ash Wednesday, Christians can encounter the living God, who in all of life is with us — in bitter times and in sweet ones, in suffering and in celebration, in grieving and in joy. Our theme for this evening meditation is a shared reflection on ashes.
March 18 Friday FULL Moon coincides with Lailat al Bahra’ah, a holy night for Muslims.
It celebrates the unconditional forgiveness of God who blesses all human beings without exception and gathers all in eternal mercy. This is the night God descends from Heaven and most generously forgives all sinners. Muslims spend the night in special prayers, staying awake as long as possible, hoping to receive divine blessings for the well-being of all humanity. To prepare for this day many Muslims will fast and visit the graves of loved ones, praying for the peace of their souls. Our theme for this evening meditation is a shared reflection on generous forgiveness.
