About 30 members of our congregation came together to enjoy our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. Shrove Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, is based on the traditional of clearing out the “fat” or other tempting foods from the pantry the night before Lent. This prepared the house for the 40 days of Lent which once upon a time was a period of serious fasting. Clearing the pantry would help eliminate temptation.
