Marking the beginning of Lent, Ash Wednesday services traditionally draw on the ancient biblical traditions of covering one’s head with ashes, wearing sackcloth, and fasting as a sign of mourning and penitence. Ashes, made by burning the palm branches from the previous year’s Palm Sunday, are a reminder that one day we will die, and the shape of the cross reminds us that whether we live or whether we die, we are not alone. We belong to God.
