Tonight was the first time I’ve experienced Ash Wednesday celebrated at a Baptist church. My own church, Crooked Creek Baptist Church, was the host to an interfaith Ash Wednesday service, a multi-congregation and multi-denomination celebration, featuring our own Rev. Tom Bartley as well as Rev. L. Bryant Parker of Witherspoon Presbyterian, Rev. Kevin Bausman of Immanuel Presbyterian, and Pastors Ryan Algrim and Shannon Dycus from the First Mennonite Church, among others. Musicians and other members of these congregations shared parts of the service and joined us for worship. It was a really wonderful experience!
