This Ash Wednesday you are invited to come to the church between 3 and 4:45 PM for the imposition of ashes. Pastor Diane will be at the front entry – you will be asked to come around the drive and she will place ashes on your forehead while you remain in your vehicle. Everyone is asked to wear a mask; Pastor Diane will be masked and use Covid safety precautions.
Ashes on the forehead is a sign of our humanity and a reminder of our mortality. Lent is not a matter of being good, and wearing ashes is not to show off one’s faith. The ashes are a reminder to us and our communities of our finite creatureliness. The ashes we wear on our Lenten journey symbolize the dust and broken debris of our lives.
