go ahead…ash me one more time what today is….

ash-wednesday_2014

This year, Ash Wednesday falls on March 5, 2014, which is 46 days prior to Easter.  It marks the beginning of 40-day liturgical period of prayer and fasting or abstinence. 

Since I was raised Southern Baptist, I never was able to take part in this practice.  But this year, my church, North Phoenix Baptist Church will be hosting a Ash Wednesday Service for several denominations here in the Phoenix area.  If you are close, I invite you to attend the service at 6:30pm.

In the meantime…

I have found a waaay better explanation HERE for Ash Wednesday, called “Ash Wednesday for Newbies“.  Check it out because being a newbie myself, I don’t want you to ash me any questions I can’t answer…….(did you see what I did there?)

  3. Hi Sandi, Just for “small world” effect I will tell you that our family were members at North Phoenix Baptist for seven very good years in the early 2000’s. A great church!

    • Stop it! That’s so cool! Pastor Yeary isn’t there, we now have a new pastor. Last nights service was really great. Are y’all still in AZ?

      • I have heard. The new pastor is a Phx Sem grad. We are indeed still in central Phoenix. Btw, I ran into pastor Dan two weeks after his retirement. He was counseling a college-aged guy in a Starbucks. That was pretty encouraging.

  4. So glad you got to see him before he left for TX! I had the privilege of helping care for Melinda and was sorry to see them leave, but from what I hear, they are doing great (and super close to their kids!) I love your blog, and I am thankful for your wisdom with the scriptures! Have a FABULOUS day! 🙂
