Faith from the Edges

Faith and life from the perspective of me.

Ash Wednesday

Burning palms

Yesterday we burned palms and they turned into ashes. Today those ashes will be put on foreheads in the shape of a cross. The words said by the dear one will be said by clergy all around the world today: Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return.


Dust is a good thing, it is what we are all made of, everything in creation is made up of dust, star dust at that. It is when we take the dust and do something with it that something beautiful happens. The dear one posted this video up on his Facebook page this morning. It says what I want this Lent to be for me. To make all things beautiful.

Here’s to a Holy Lent for those who are walking this journey.
