That is the question
Where we are they want to have Ash Wednesday services - complete with Ashes...
I don't understand. I'm sure there is some symbolism for this.
I just don't think that the early Christians saved the palm branches and burned them the next year ... neither do I read anywhere anything about Lent... I think as Christians we should live a fasted lifestyle and not relegate it to just 40 days.
Any wisdom or answer as to the validity of this practice? I fear it is a tradition of man that has the form of godliness without the power.
I guess this is my rant.
