Lent, the 40-day season of preparation for Easter, begins with Ash Wednesday. On this day, Christians remember that we were created from the dust and to the dust our bodies will return at the end of this life. It is a day to stare our mortality straight in the face, remembering that life is fragile but oh so holy. With ashes we confess that we live in brokenness and frequently fall short of God’s intention for our lives- yet, Easter brings a celebration that God’s love is stronger than even these forces of death. Join us as we embark together as a community of faith on this journey through the season of Lent.
