Today, Lord, some of your followers
go to church and receive
a sign of ashes on their foreheads.
It’s a way of remembering your death.
We will have a service in our chapel
and several will participate
by reading the passion story.
We grieve over our sins
that led to your death on the cross.
But we give thanks
that you loved us so much
that you gave your life
that we might know true life.
Thank you. Amen.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
