ASH WEDNESDAY AND SEASON OF LENT
 
Since the beginning of the church, Christians have observed the days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection with great devotion. It became one of the greatest traditions of the church to prepare for these events through serious examination of our spiritual lives.
 
In the Ash Wednesday Service we are reminded of our mortality, we confess our sins, and we experience forgiveness through Christ’s death and resurrection. The “imposition of ashes” (where the sign of the cross is marked onto your head or hand in ash) is a central part of the service. In Scripture, ashes serve both as a symbol of mortality and as a sign of mourning and repentance.
 
The Season of Lent is a time of penitence, discipline and renewal. During the days following the Ash Wednesday Service leading up to Easter, Christians traditionally sacrifice something to represent Christ’s Sacrifice and his time in the wilderness being tempted by Satan. That something can be an activity, a treat or type of food, etc.
 
But neither sin nor death are the final word. We leave the service in confidence and gratitude. Christ has conquered death, and nothing can separate us from the love of God, which in in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
