I'm a queer Christian pastor, and I'll be using regular, old, boring ashes like always.
Lent | Ash Wednesday (Year A Year B Year C)
Joel 2:1-2, 12-17 or Isaiah 58:1-12 (Psalm 51:1-17); 2 Corinthians 5:20b-6:10; Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21
There are two sure things in life: death and sin.
It's hard for me to grasp that mortality is my fate, too.
