Lent

Lent is a time of prayer, fasting, and contemplation leading up to Easter; a time we can reflect and prepare for the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection.  It starts with Ash Wednesday and ends with Easter and mirrors the 40 days (not counting Sundays) that Jesus spent in the wilderness during his time of testing. 

For many, making small sacrifices, like avoiding certain foods or activities, helps them focus.  Some follow daily devotional not unlike those of Advent.

As people of faith, we seek to “serve and preserve” God’s world.

~Presbyterian Mission

This year, our theme is “Tread Lightly for Lent.”  It’s a daily reflection on ways we can be better stewards of the world God has entrusted to us, as well as to care for those around us.  There are calls to action that challenge us to look towards sustainable choices, appreciate the beauty of our world, and honor the responsibility we have as faithful caretakers of our planet.

In Lent, we slow down, take time, and examine our internal spiritual lives and the way we live out our Christian faith
