You are invited to join us for a simple service of prayer and the imposition of the ashes as we begin the season of Lent. Psalm 51 reads: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” As we receive the ashes, we open our hearts to be fashioned anew. It is a privilege and a joy to walk the path toward Easter together, as we listen together for the still-speaking God in our midst.
Listen to the long stillness: New life is stirring New dreams are on the wing New hopes are being readied: Humankind is fashioning a new heart Humankind is forging a new mind God is at work. This is the season of Promise. (Howard Thurman)
