The Global Mission Lenten Series, which includes a host of resources of mid-week Lenten services–even “global” soup recipes for soup suppers–is featured on the ELCA homepage. Be sure to visit www.elca.org/globalmission/lent to check it out for yourself and your congregation. Please share the site with others in your network.
Thanks to the ELCA missionaries who wrote for the Lenten Series, to the Rev. Julie Rowe who edited the series, and to our CO colleagues, especially Ben McDonald Coltvet and Marianne Griebler, for highlighting the series on the ELCA homepage!
This message is sponsored by paczki (POONschies), the official Fat Tuesday pastry. Mmmmmm….paczki.

Hey wait a minute! Chicagoans might like paczki (I write this with a bit of confectioner’s sugar on my sweater from a paczki right now), but it’s not the “official” Fat Tuesday pastry. Back where I come from in Pennsylvania, the official Fat Tuesday pastry is a fastnacht. Yum! It’s all regional, it’s all ethnic. I wonder what other delicious pastries are being eaten today?

I’m looking forward to pancakes for dinner, with canned shrimp in a white sauce over the top. It’s neither traditional nor ethnic…just nostalgic for me! I’m heading over to the Women of the ELCA blog to learn more.
