Ash Wednesday Worship

Date: 
March 1, 2017 - 7:00pm to 7:30pm
Location: 
Sanctuary

The offering of ashes at this service marking the first day of Lent is accompanied by words such as, “From dust you came and to dust you will return.” This service, with the experience of receiving the imposition of ashes, is an especially appropriate service for young children who may marvel at all of us sharing the same sign of belonging. We will also “bury the Alleluia” for the Lenten season.

How do our internal preferences influence the way we operate in the outside world?

by Laura Martin

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
