Ash Wednesday, the first day of the 40 day season of Lent, begins a time of reflection and recommitment to our calling to follow Jesus. During this season of Lent we focus our minds and our hearts on reconnecting to Jesus, the one whose love for us makes our lives complete and full of life.
Self-examination, asking for forgiveness, self-denial and reading and meditation on God’s Holy Word, the Bible, can help us to focus and connect to God’s life giving Spirit.
At our Ash Wednesday services, those in the congregation are given the opportunity to come to the altar rail and have ashes placed on their foreheads as the clergy say these words, “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Here we are reminded that we are mortal and it is only through God’s gracious gift of Jesus, that we are given everlasting life.
We hope that you will join us on Ash Wednesday and throughout the Lenten season as we all recommit ourselves to being faithful followers of Jesus, our Savior.
