What is Lent?
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And he fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterward he was hungry. Matthew 4:1-2
In an earlier age, Lent was the season in the church year in which congregations walked with those who were preparing to become Christians through Holy Baptism It is also a season in which we who are baptized consider our own faith journey and how well we are walking with Christ. Thus, Lent is a time for both repentance and growth.
We invite you to go deeper the Lent, and to see the 40- Days of this Season - roughly one tenth of the year - as a tithe of your time back to God. The traditional, biblical act of fasting, prayer, and acts of loving service are in which you might experience a new beginning of your own.
