ASH WEDNESDAY

As a Baptist I have  officially observed Ash Wednesday only for the last (13) years of my life.

We gather in our chapel at First Baptist of Chattanooga for a time of quiet reflection centered around individual contemplation, scripture, and music that point  our hearts and thoughts toward the sufferings of Jesus in our behalf.

The service is concluded with each person receiving a cross ash mark on one forehead or hand.  We depart from the chapel in silence.
