We come from dust and to dust we shall return
We come from the land and will go back to the land
Lent, from the Old English word for Spring, is the season when the church prepares to remember Jesus’ death and resurrection. This time of solemn anticipation and getting our hearts ready begins on Ash Wednesday.
This year we of Salal + Cedar, who pray for climate justice, will mark our foreheads with ashes from a tree burned in the Lytton fire in Nlapa’pamux territory and collected by community members made homeless by this human-caused disaster.

Noon at Cottonwood Community Garden in Vancouver (Raymur and Malkin)
