UPDATE: The BBC interviewed me once this started trending globally on Twitter. Just call me the Godfather of the #Ashtag +:-)

Want to spread the word about the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday? There are plenty of ways for your church to do so. And here’s an easy way for you and your friends to do so.

1. Take a selfie with your ashes.

2. Tag it #ashtag

3 Share on your favorite social channels.

Selfie on Ash Wednesday = #Ashtag
Selfie on Ash Wednesday = #Ashtag [square format, good for sharing on Instagram]

Now if you are giving up social media for Lent, this is the perfect way to go out in style while explaining your upcoming 40-day absence. And if you are taking on some #chsocm (church social media) during Lent, this works, too!
