You might ask……What's with the ashes?  The ashes remind us of our mortality and they are also our symbol of mourning and repenting for our sins. These are reminders of our need for a Savior.  The ashes placed on the shape of the cross on the forehead of each Disciple transform the ashes into our proclamation that we have such a Savior in Jesus Christ! Ash Wednesday is a vital and holy time as we begin the season of Lent. 

Have A BLESSED day and see you at dinner on Wednesday at 6pm!
