A Money Coach in Canada

It’s ash wednesday, in my particular faith tradition, and I had a whimsical thought: I will return to dust, but some of my loonies and toonies will outlast me! kinda erie, now, looking at my coin jar.

And on a more serious note, I was struck by how money-and-power/politics related the liturgical prayers for ash wednesday were:

We confess….

our self-indulgent ways, and our exploitation of other people

our anger at our own frustration, and our envy of those more fortunate than ourselves

our intemperate love of worldly goods and comforts [ed note: that would be me]

Accept our repentence…

for our blindness to human need and suffering

for our prejudice and contempt toward those who differ from us

for our waste and pollution of creation, and our lack of concern for those who come after us.

Ouch! Hit a little close to home…
