Reviving the Passion by Walter Wangerin Jr

Ash Wednesday  . . .  a  day of personal ashes…

We. . . are. . . dust. . . and . . . ashes.

Walter Wangerin Jr. writes, “When we genuinely remember (memento) the death we deserve to die, we will be moved to remember the death the Lord in fact did die–because he took the place of ours.”

Did you attend an Ash Wednesday service ? . . .

What does Ash Wednesday signify to you?

This 40 day sacrifice. . . mourning the death that sin caused in our lives. . . Hearing the gospel story . . . seeing our death in His. . .waiting for a resurrection as well. . .

How are you participating in  the tradition of Lent?
