Ash Wednesday

(Written as a study for Voyagers Sunday School class)

Ash Wednesday marks the onset of Lent.

Lent is the 40-day period of weekdays from Ash Wednesday leading up to Easter.  For some Christians, Lent is a time of fasting and abstinence  (recalling Jesus' 40-day fast in the wilderness --- Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, and Luke 4:1-13).   Lent is a time of prayer, penitence, and self-evaluation.
