Passage: Joel 2:1-17

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday.

During Pender’s Ash Wednesday service Pastor Will shared a sermon titled “Piety Practice” from the Lenten series “Gathered Up in Jesus”.

The congregation was invited to receive the ashes on their foreheads. Pastor Will will dip his finger into the ashes, spread them in a cross pattern on the forehead, and say, “From dust you came and from dust you will return.”

Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The season of Lent is essential for those who truly seek to be disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Because a part of what we learn in this time of self-examination is that we are what might be most in need of transformation. We might find that what might need to grow in faith and discipleship is the church and that the transformation of the world begins with building bridges and gathering up rather than with condemnation. We hope you’ll join in with churches around the world as we seek to be gathered up in Jesus.
