Dear Friends, Lent begins March 6th and continues until Easter. Lent is the season that the church has set aside for us to intentionally reflect on our relationship with God, others, and ourselves. It is a time to reflect on those things that bring us closer to God and others, and those things that keep us alienated from God and others.
Historically people have given up certain foods or drinks for Lent. This Lent I invite you to consider what you might do to enter the season.
This year you might consider adding an activity to your daily routine; a devotional, a spiritual discipline such as journaling, prayer or silence. You might take time to read or sing a hymn each morning or you might consider and intentional act of kindness or service each day.
Or instead of adding to your day you may consider giving up some thing. It could be giving up television time or time on Facebook in order to redirect that time in order to build your relationship with God, or others in your life.
I encourage you to think about it now so that you will be ready to begin on March 6th. Think about it. Be intentional. And whatever you choose to do or not do, may Lent filled with the blessing of God’s grace. May you come to know more deeply the overflowing grace of God in your life.
