Good morning and welcome to our service on the first Sunday of Lent 2021. Lent is the season of fasting and reflection during which we prepare ourselves for the coming of Easter, the pinnacle of the Christian year. In some churches the burning of the previous year’s Palm Sunday crosses takes place on Shrove Tuesday – Pancake Day – so that the ash may be rubbed on the foreheads of believers on Ash Wednesday as a sign of repentance before God – a nod to the dressing in sackcloth and ashes as a sign of repentance and mourning in Old Testament times.
