Our Lenten season of reflection and repentance begins Ash Wednesday, February 22. Worship will be held at 7 pm. The imposition of ashes will take place. This sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship.
You may have heard the saying “Sunday’s palms are Wednesdays ashes”. It is traditional to save the palm branches from the previous Passion/Palm Sunday service and burn them ahead of time to produce the ashes for this service. Genesis has been faithful in carrying on this tradition for the Ash Wednesday service.
