Tonight I went to a church close by my home, Montrose Church, for their Ash Wednesday service. My family and I attended a few Sundays there during my sabbatical this past summer (2013). The really wonderful thing was that we already knew a few people that attend the church. Love how God brings people together. I thought the pastor did a great job of articulating the meaning and purpose of Ash Wednesday and helping us establish the fast. Thank you Pastor Dave Roberts.
I came home to prepare a one page “guide” for myself to create or deepen a few practices to turn from my sin and towards Jesus during these 40 days of Lent (minus the Sundays) before the resurrection of Jesus.
I found this short and insightful (fun too) 2 min video on Ash Wednesday.
Even though I have known the basics about Ash Wednesday this short video was helpful.
