Dr. Jeff Owens, pastor of First Baptist Church, delivers his message Wednesday to an estimated 120 visitors from various congregations in the first of a seven-week series of mid-week Lenten devotionals. All the services will be in the First Baptist sanctuary at 12 p.m. noon.
Millions of Christians around the world joined Wednesday, the day solemnly observed as Ash Wednesday, to launch the 40-day period of personal examination, self-denial and spiritual renewal known as Lent.
