“Wake-Up Call” is Rev. Mark Winter’s newest monologue, and a wake-up call is what we got at our two Ash Wednesday services at First UMC Killeen, TX. Mark envisioned John the Baptist as a modern backwoodsman with a hunting jacket, walking stick and wading boots. During the scripture reading he marched in thundering a message of repentance and urging the people to take the message to heart so they wouldn’t just be walking around with dirty foreheads, making “ashes” out of themselves.
