ash-wednesday-cross2On Ash Wednesday, March 1, we shared Services of Holy Eucharist and the Imposition of Ashes at 9:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. After the 9:30 Service, we watched and discussed the five Ash Wednesday Reflections embedded below, each of which has a slightly different angle on its meaning, and the meaning of the Season of Lent. A sixth Reflection, which I’ll mention at the bottom of this posting, was shared in the sermon at both Services.
