The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Cold Spring Church will offer a special worship experience from noon to 12:45 pm.
Ash Wednesday was designated centuries ago as a day of mourning for our sin and the sin of all humanity before God. It recognizes our mortality save for the grace of God. In humility but also with confidence in Christ, we ask that the Lord remember our creation and breathe new life into our burned-out, dusty lives, communities, and the world once more.
This is a service for the imposition of ashes and the remembrance of baptism. The pastor's message will offer assurance that though we are dust, we are baptized dust, and that makes all the difference as begin our Lenten journey toward the cross; and at last on Easter, remember that the Living Water gives us new life.
The community is welcomed to attend.
