Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent. I've never participated in an Ash Wednesday service before, never had the ashes on my forehead. But tonight at Redeemer I will not only participate in the service, but pray for people and put the ashes on their foreheads. This is humbling for me, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the congregation in this way.
For a great primer on Ash Wednesday, read Eugene Cho's post here.
Redeemer's service starts tonight at 6:30pm. If you're in Tulsa, I hope you'll consider joining us.
