Message: Predictions: Problems or Promise? by Pastor Jack Mannschreck
Make Your Own Ashes
Think of something you’d like to change in your life—a transformation you’d like to work on in your life or a bad habit you’d like to overcome. Write that hopeful transformation or bad habit on a piece of paper. Place the paper into a fireproof bowl and burn the paper. Crush the burned remains with the back of a spoon. To place the ashes on your forehead, wet your finger with a little olive or mineral oil, dip your finger in the ashes and then rub them gently on your forehead. You can apply ashes on your forehead early in the day as a means of witnessing to your faith throughout the day, or you can wait until our Ash Wednesday Service (7 p.m.) to participate in the placing of the ashes on your forehead. May we be blessed as we enter this season of Lent in 2021!
