Ash Wednesday Service – AZ City @ Arizona City Central Lutheran Church
Mar 6 @ 5:00 pm

Ash Wednesday is the Wednesday of the seventh week before Easter and the first day of the season of Lent. The day is named for the practice of imposing ashes.

Using ashes as a sign of repentance is an ancient practice, often mentioned in the Bible. The early Christians adopted the use of ashes from Jewish practices as an external mark of penitence.

Ashes symbolize several aspects of our existence:
– reminding us of God’s condemnation of sin, as God said to Adam, “Dust you are and to dust you shall return.” (Genesis 3:19)
– suggest cleansing and renewal; they were used in ancient times in the absence of water.
– reminding us of the shortness of human life.
– a symbol of our need to confess our sinfulness and be obedient to God.

The term “Lent” comes from the Anglo-Saxon word “lencten” which means “spring.” The season of Lent began as a period of fasting leading up to the Vigil of Easter. Those individuals preparing for baptism at Easter would fast and spend days in intense preparation.

With our understanding of the season this seems hard to imagine; however, originally this was only a two-day period of time. In the 4th century Lent became a three-week period, and later, a six-week (40 days) season excluding Sundays. (Sundays are always celebrations of the resurrection.)

The current practice of 40 days recall Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness following his baptism in preparation for the beginning of his ministry.
