Ash Wednesday

Here is a part of a poem by Edward Shillito called "Jesus of the Scars":

...The other gods were strong, but Thou wast weak;
They rode, but Thou didst stumble to a throne,
But to our wounds, only God's wounds can speak
And not a god has wounds, but Thou alone

There's a Gillian Welch song that goes, "I will know my Savior when I come to Him by the mark where the nails have been."

So there are a couple of things to think about as the season of Lent begins.
