February 26: See

By Aaron Pazan
For me when I think about see I think of a lot of things. But, Rachel Held Evans brings something to table that everyone should realize.

“Once a year, on a Wednesday, we mix ashes with oil. We light candles and confess to one another and to God that we have sinned by what we have done and what we have left undone. We tell the truth. Then we smear the ashes on our foreheads and together acknowledge the single reality upon which every Catholic and Protestant, believer and atheist, scientist and mystic can agree: “Remember that you are dust and to dust you will return.” It’s the only thing we know for sure: we will die.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.”
— Rachel Held Evans, Searching for Sunday
