During the Ash Wednesday service our foreheads are adorned with ashes followed by the words: "For you are dust, And to dust you shall return." (Gen. 3:19) This physical sign commemorates the beginning of our Lenten season of sacrifice and spiritual growth. If you are like me, it is not uncommon for your Ash Wednesday cross to turn into a smudge. When going out in public, you may receive a question or comment about your forehead being "dirty". It is easy to be vague and shy away from comments about this mark of sacrifice. But this year challenge yourself to be prepared to fully answer their questions. So, which method will you use to explain your ashes?
