Ash Wednesday Service
March 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Traditionally, the Christian church has observed the seven weeks before Easter as a time of penitence and spiritual self-examination. Ash Wednesday is March 6 this year and will mark the beginning of our Lenten Season. Ash Wednesday derives its name from the ancient practice of marking the foreheads of worshipers with ashes from the unused palm branches of the previous year. Our service will also include the imposition of ashes.
Ashes historically have had a dual significance. First, they are Old Testament symbols of sadness and humility. The second symbolic meaning of ashes is as a reminder of our mortality as our bodies and material possessions eventually will turn to dust and ashes.
We will be using GODSPEED as a guide for our Lenten journey this year. (A 30-minute Documentary) – This is the second showing. The first showing was at Wine & Waffles.
3 days, 2 brothers and a camera
This is the story of an American pastor whose desire to change the world grinds to a halt in a Scottish parish. GODSPEED was shot in three days, in three villages, by three friends. What began as a five minute video ended as a half-hour portrait of the people and places who had taught Matt to repent & rest. None of this would have happened had not Matt’s brother Brian hopped on a plane with his friend Danny of The Ranch Studios, the week that Matt and his family were packing their bags to move. Four years later, and twenty-four film drafts squeezed in between sermons and parish visits, Godspeed is here and ready to be shared. We hope you enjoy this labor of love as we all seek to live at Godspeed in our own parishes. livegodspeed.org
