Imposition of Ashes
Choir will be singing

 
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. Early Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church that before the Easter celebration there should be a forty-day season of spiritual preparation. This is a season of reflection, repentance, and reconciliation.
 
The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship, and the Imposition of Ashes can be a powerful, nonverbal, experiential way of participating in the call to repentance and reconciliation. This practice is the historic focus of Ash Wednesday observance and gave the day its name.
 
We invite you to observe a holy Lent by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by readying and meditating of God’s Word. Let us gather in worship and find our kneeling place before our gracious and compassionate Lord.
