Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent.  It’s called Ash Wednesday because as a sign of repentance, believers through the centuries have received the mark of an ashen cross on their forehead.  The ashes remind us of God’s words to Adam when he sinned- “remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return,” and it reminds us of the Old Testament practice of wearing sackcloth and having ashes placed on the head as a sign of spiritual poverty.  On Feb. 10, we’ll gather for Ash Wednesday worship, hear God’s word of hope, and be marked with the ashes of repentance.
