Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, the 40-day period (not including Sundays) that precedes Easter. During Lent, we remember that Jesus experienced hunger and thirst during his time of temptation in the desert and that before Resurrection, there was the Crucifixion. Many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. During our Ash Wednesday service, the minister will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers who come forward to receive them.

Or to simplify, some see Lent as a season to give up things that have been barriers or add into their lives things that will bring them closer to God.
