Divine selfies

To be honest my mind has been on freezing rain, snow, a garage door frozen t the ground, church doors frozen shut (or so I’m told), the postponement of  Shrove Tuesday’s pancake supper. Ashes and the advent of a holy Lent has been the farthest thing from my mind. Nonetheless responsibilities are responsibilities so I set about pondering, ash crosses verses ash smudges, Ease and Ardor [i] and regal selfies.  It seems the idea of us being made in the image of God has roots in kings leaving selfies (statues) around the realm to remind folks who was in charge.  I have no idea where this is going, but I can’t wait to get there.
