Preached FCCW, March 6, 2019, Ash Wednesday
2 Corinthians 5:20b-6:10 and Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21
The church calendar is filled with holy seasons, like Advent, Epiphany, and lent; and holy days like Christmas, Easter, Pentecost – and the one we are here to observe tonight, Ash Wednesday. Often, there are certain visible and tangible practices associated with these special times. Like being anointed with ashes on Ash Wednesday.
