Love this! I hadn’t heard about Glitter Ashes until this year but I think it’s a great idea. Especially when a church also offers the option for traditionalists to get the plain ash, I don’t see anything wrong with it. “We are stardust. We will become stardust.” I hadn’t yet seen any serious theological discussion behind it. “God insists that we look for the spark of light…” definitely an attitude to incorporate into my Lenten practice. Thanks for writing this.
