Ashes and bread

We shared ashes and bread tonight. As the sign of the cross was painted on our forehead with the commission to "Go and live out the gospel", we acknowledged God's forgiveness and call to repentance (in that order). As we pledged our desire to journey with Christ through the wilderness we celebrated God's nourishment by sharing food for the journey - the body and blood of Christ. Ashes and bread - a wonderful start to Lent.
