Today Is Ash Wednesday


Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day of prayer, fasting, and repentance. It is preceded by Shrove Tuesday and falls on the first day of Lent, the six weeks of penitence before Easter.

I will be observing Ash Wednesday today at my church. I also have to figure out what to give up and/or take on as a part of this 40 day journey to Easter.

The light of a candle is an important part of the holiday season. It’s a way people find their way home to the Divine.

The journey of Advent begins with an Advent wreath to light the way to the coming of Christ. Today at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Chattanooga TN was the annual Advent wreath making session where parishioners made their own wreaths to carry home.
