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?)
