If there ever is a day of the year when you can spot a Christian at a glance, it’s Ash Wednesday. That’s the one day when we literally wear our faith on our foreheads.
In Georgia, one pastor I know distributes ashes, prayers and blessings all day in front of his church in the drive-through. Across the street from my Atlanta apartment building, in front of the Marta Station, someone is distributing ashes and blessings to people as they rushed to work or school.
I thank God that we are taking our faith out to the streets, out to people who may not have a church home, out to people who may be so rushed that a drive-through blessing is all they have time for.
This message is an excerpt from a Women of the ELCA blog by Patti Austin. Today is Ash Wednesday.
