Lent 2018 in colours

We start Lent with the colour black.  Black ashes  are used in the Ash Wednesday service.  Black is the colour of the soil that's turned, ready to plant in, ready to grow things.  We want to grow  in bible reading, in prayer,in giving, in discipline of ourselves to God's service in Lent.  That's why we use black.
