This year’s Ash Wednesday service will be held in our Sanctuary on Wednesday, March 1, at 7:00 p.m. with special music.
The focus of Ash Wednesday, like the season of Lent, is not self-loathing or loathing of anyone else for that matter. The focus is repentance, which is precisely where Jesus’s ministry begins. At the end of all 3 Synoptic Gospels, Jesus says, “Repent, for the kingdom of God is near.”
Repentance is not feeling bad about being bad. Repentance is making the changes we need to make. The fruit of Ash Wednesday’s prayerful reflection yields more life, not less.
