Ash Wednesday

ash_wednesdayTomorrow is Ash Wednesday.  This begins the important Church season of Lent. Robin & I will be getting up early tomorrow morning to participate in the 6:30 a.m. Ash Wednesday Service at the Mars Hill Bible Church in Grandville. They offer Ash Wednesday Services at 6:30 a.m. and at noon. I was asked to assist with the Imposition of the Ashes at the early service. I appreciate being asked.

I feel like something is missing if Ash Wednesday isn’t part of my Lent.
