Ash Wednesday

Posted by Rich Lubbers on

Ash Wednesday is not something I grew up with at First Baptist Church of Richardson, TX. It isn’t something that I think many lifelong Baptists grew up with, no matter if your life has been relatively short like mine, or if you’re a little further along the journey than I am. As...
