      One thing you might try is disabling “HD” on the lower right. My home computer has to have HD disabled in order for it to play smoothly (a netbook).

    Ben and Doug

    Thanks for doing this. I have been surprised to learn of Presbyterian churches practicing Ash Wednesday. I was curious if there are any direct writings by reformers on their view of this practice?

    Rev. Wilson’s points were very balanced and Biblical.
