Sometimes we celebrate the serious ones with you too. I seem to be the lone Lutheran at my office and I was considering what to do about Ash Wednesday - I work an extended 10 hour shift and worse, my home parish is too far to make it to their noon service.
I asked a Catholic co-worker what her plans were and this discussion has grown to include a group of Catholics (and one Lutheran) who are now planning to go to worship and have ashes imposed at a nearby Catholic church. Finding out how many of us have our faith in common was really a great blessing - in the sterile corporate environment you can work quietly next to folks and have no idea what their beliefs are.
And knowing who is observing Lent is good too, so we can encourage each other.
