Ash Wednesday Ceremony
February 10, 2016
February 10, 2016, Ash Wednesday, marks the beginning of the Lenten season which is observed by many Christian Faiths worldwide. During the season of Lent, the forty days leading up to Easter Sunday, many Christians focus on simple living, prayer, and fasting in order to grow closer to God. In Unity, Lent metaphysically represents an opportunity to “fast” from erroneous and self- defeating thinking and behaviors which create the experience of fear and separation. Through our Spiritual Powers of Elimination and Life, we have an opportunity on a daily basis not only during Lent to release beliefs and actions that are not in alignment with our Highest Good and to animate the consciousness of the Christ.
Please join me in a reflective prayer ceremony where you will have an opportunity to cleanse your consciousness, affirm Truth, and set intentions to be an active participant on your Spiritual journey vitalizing your Christ Consciousness. Sacred palm ash will be distributed as a symbol of dying to the old and being reborn to new life.
Love and light,
