Resources for Lent
What are the origins of Lent? Check out this article from sharefaith.com.
Lent is an Anglo-Saxon term meaning “Spring.” As early as the mid-fourth century, Christians have observed a time of preparation before the Easter celebration. The Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday and lasts for 40 days. The forty days of Lent recall the 40 day fast of Jesus in the wilderness after his baptism and Moses' 40 day fast on Mount Sinai. It is a time of simplicity and preparation.
Principal Themes of Lent:
Preparation for baptism at Easter
Prayer, fasting, and service
Confession of sin rooted in the promise of God that comes through the cross of Christ
Created for Community
Using readings from Mark’s gospel, this series invites us to reflect on what it means to be in community with one another, with the world, with creation, and with God. This time of reflection and prayer begins each Wednesday evening at 7 pm. Click the picture to join the ZOOM meeting.
