Ash Wednesday

Posted on

Protestants have only begun to observe Ash Wednesday fairly recently, so we have no real traditions for how to do it. Covid has complicated much, including Ash Wednesday. I believe the goal for any observance of Ash Wednesday should be an opportunity for as many as possible to participate in a moment of worship and reflection and to receive ashes if they wish.

As no single service is possible for all, this Ash Wednesday we will have five. The Sanctuary will be open from 7am to 7pm for any who wish to spend time in reflection and prayer. There will be a 10 minute liturgy, including the Imposition of Ashes, offered five times during the day, viz. At 7am, 9am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, and 5:30pm. Those times are picked in the hopes of making before work, around lunch, or just after work possible for many. As I am available all day, if you wish to receive ashes and none of these times are possible, I would be happy to meet you at church anytime that day.
