Please join us virtually at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, in Topeka, Kansas, at noon (or whenever you are able) on Wednesday, February 17, 2021, for the Ash Wednesday service as we worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of fasting and repentance. Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the earth. At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads at baptism. While we journey through Lent to return to God, we have already been reconciled to God through Christ. We humbly pray for God to make our hearts clean while we rejoice that “now is the day of salvation.” Returning to our baptismal call, we more intentionally bear the fruits of mercy and justice in the world.
