Today – “Ashes to Go” (Traditional and Glitter) in the KC

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Christian season of Lent that leads up to Easter. Lent is a season of reflection, repentance, and re-centering. In collaboration with Spiritual Life, local United Methodist clergy will provide ‘ashes to go’ in the Kellogg lobby from 1 to 3 p.m., Ash Wednesday, including traditional palm ashes and glitter ashes. Why ashes? Ashes symbolize mortality, grief, and repentance. Why glitter? Ashes mixed with biodegradable glitter represent LGBTQ affirmation and inclusion. They are also a public acknowledgement of the divine worth of each human being, including those who have often been marginalized. Together, they invite us to view Lent–and life–in a new way. For more information, email media@umcmarshall.org.
