Ash Wednesday March 6th 7:00

Join us for Ash Wednesday Service March 6th at 7:00 PM

Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth: Grant that these ashes may be to
us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious
gift that we are given everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Savior.  Amen.
The service of Ash Wednesday invites us to the observance of a holy Lent.
As ashes are imposed on our foreheads Ash Wednesday, we hear the words, “Remember that
you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” With these words, we are reminded of our mortality.
What do we do in the face of that reminder? How do we live fully with the knowledge that one day
we will die? As Christians, how do we embrace and even celebrate our mortality?
