Ass Wednesday

This is what I found waiting for me when I got to church this morning:

We’ve seen a recent increase in vandalism to our sign. I don’t mind the obscene messages too much, I just wish they could learn to spell (lick is not spelled “lich”) and that they wouldn’t steal the letters. It makes me long for one of those fancy, megachurch, electronic signs that I could program from the comfort of my office.

What I’m trying to mull over is the theological significance of “Ass Wednesday.” Surely there is sermon material there for my meditation tonight. How about how we are all rear ends in need of grace? What do you think?
