Ash Wednesday: Remember We Are Dust.

by Chris Kamalski

Ash Wednesday

We are a few hours away from observing Ash Wednesday as a 3rd Place community. Our Lenten focus this year is [Torn//Lent 2011].

This portion of the Ash Wednesday liturgy has always struck me deeply:

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the
earth: Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our
mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is
only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

How are you observing this season of preparation as an individual or community?

This is how I am walking with 3rd Place into the Lenten Season (Download pdf to join with!).
