All About Lent

LentThe more intentionally we prepare for an event, the more meaningful that event can become.  This week we started the season of Lent, the period of 40 days (not counting Sundays) of preparation for Easter.  Lent has traditionally been marked by penitential prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  Today, some Christians do not place as great an emphasis on fasting, but focus on charitable deeds, especially helping those in physical need with food and clothing, or simply the giving of money to charities. It is really a preparation to celebrate God’s marvelous redemption at Easter, and the resurrected life that we live, and hope for, as Christians.  Read more about the season of Lent, including its special days, symbols and colors.
