(HD VIDEO) Ash Wednesday worship at Norway Lake Lutheran parish
Worship service for Wednesday, February 17, 2021
February 18, 2021
Below is the video for worship services on Ash Wednesday at Norway Lake Lutheran parish of rural New London, MN.
As Pastor Wayne says at the beginning of worship, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the 40-day journey for the Easter season. The special day is a day of fasting and repentance for Christians, where we acknowledge that upon death, our bodies return to the earth. The sign of the cross marked on our foreheads marks the same sign of the cross marked at the time of our baptism into the Christian faith.
