Remembering a Favorite Ash Wednesday

"Our Ash Wednesday service was one of my most meaningful experiences as a minister. I can’t explain it, but repeating, 'It is from dust that you were formed and to dust you will return,’ while marking the heads of young and old was powerful and comforting.”

"I honestly don’t know how to describe how it felt to look into your eyes as you came forward for your ashes. One would think that repeating words about death would be depressing, but on that day, for me, it wasn't. I was reminded that we are not alone and that our lives are part of something bigger than just our flesh and this earth."

"But the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases."
