First United Methodist provides "drive-thru Ash Wednesday service

On Wednesday, Feb. 14, Christians around the world will observe Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season of Lent leading up to Easter Sunday and the resurrection of Christ.

Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.

The use of ashes, in the sign of a cross on one’s forehead, is a sign of mortality and repentance and has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship. Historically, ashes have signified purification and sorrow for one’s sins.

Ever hear of an escape room?

There are several escape rooms in the bigger cities in Ohio and one in Findlay. Soon, there will be one nearby. In order to keep Ada Icon readers in the know on the latest trends, we did some digging to find out what an escape room is all about.

Ray Hadley, who is pastoring a church called Ada Family Center, explained that escape rooms are a live adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints, and strategy to solve the mystery of each room.
