There are many faith traditions and practices around Ash Wednesday. And you may ask, “Why is it important?” Short answer, because it starts off the Holy Season of Lent with meaning, purpose and reflection. This year 2018, Ash Wednesday is February 14 and the Lenten Season lasts through March 31. The Season lasts 40 days (not counting Sundays), representing the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness before starting His ministry. Our focus during this Season should be a time of repentance, renewal, and motivation to reach a new level of experiencing God’s grace.
Jesus said it well "Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:14-15 (NKJV).
