Ash Wednesday . . . We Are Dust. . .

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?  

The Season of Lent…Sacrifice, Servanthood and Solitude…

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and the beginning the of the Season of Lent.

 I do not come from a faith background which traditionally commemorates the season of Lent; however, over the last several years I have found myself drawn  to this  sacred time frame on many liturgical calendars…this solemn time of  preparation  for Easter.

My post is short and simple today…

If you are of a faith heritage that traditionally participates in the Lenten season, share with me what you know and I will ask questions.

I will post fresh heart knowledge and experiences from this often jaded little Baptist girl’s point of view…

Let’s share resources old and new to explore during Lent…

BUT most of all, I want to learn more about Jesus during the next 40 days…
