Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Here is a poem from Christine Sines blog that starts us off on the track of moving towards Jesus and doing Justice for those who need mercy.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

All that is not of God must die

God may we repent of ways that do not serve you

And admit to the tensions that tell us where we need to change

Christ is coming walking towards the cross

God may we see him clearly

Pouring out love

Pouring out mercy

Pouring out peace

May we kneel before him in humble adoration

May we take up our  cross and follow

And walk with Christ into the ways of life
