Ashes, Ashes

Today is Ash Wednesday. This evening, at our 7:00 pm Ash Wednesday service, we will observe the "imposition of ashes" and Holy Communion. I made the ashes earlier this week by burning palms from last year's Palm Sunday. It is a wonderful tradition, bringing the story full circle and reflecting on what it means to be "dust and ashes" - both glorious and humbling. This year, we will use Scripture from the book of Job to guide our reflection.
