Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent - a time when Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation, and spiritual discipline. Ash Wednesday emphasizes a dual encounter: we confront our own mortality and confess our sin before God within the community of faith. The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship, and the imposition of ashes can be a powerful and experiential way of participating in the call to repentance and reconciliation.
