West Seattle scene: ‘Ashes to Go’ on Ash Wednesday

The Christian observance of Lent began today with Ash Wednesday. That meant special services – and they weren’t all within the walls of churches. This morning, Katy Lloyd photographed Admiral Congregational Church pastor Rev. Andrew Conley-Holcom in The Junction this morning, where, she explained, he was offering “ashes to go.” Online research before we published the photo revealed that this is a worldwide movement involving clergy taking the Ash Wednesday tradition to the streets.

    Thank you for the explanation. Driving by a couple times, I couldn’t figure out his message.

    Bless you, sir. It was really cold and windy. I commend your spirit.

    Thanks for being a role model.  This is a hard thing to admit, especially in public.

Sorry, comment time is over.
