Ash Wednesday (B). Too often we focus on our outward behavior, our sins. But the root of our problem is not sins, but sin, our sinful nature. Joel urges us to "Turn to God and live."
Joel 2:12-19, Psalms 51:5-10

Have you ever felt like throwing in the towel? Do you know what it means to throw in the towel? It means to quit or to give up.
Have you ever felt like your situation was so hopeless that the only thing you could possibly do was quit and never look back?
