Lent is that time during the church year that we focus on prayer, giving, and fasting. It is one of my favorite times of the year. I know that we have heard many sermons and read many devotionals through the years that encourage us to give something up for Lent. We have had pastors, including myself, encourage us to add to our daily devotional practices during Lent instead of giving something up.
This year, in addition to the Lenten devotional that has been shared by our Membership Committee, I want to encourage us to intentionally pray, give, and fast this Lenten season. You will find attached a calendar for Lent. It has a daily task for you to complete that falls into one of three categories – pray, give, or fast. I want to encourage each of us to work through this calendar during Lent and see how it impacts our lives, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
You may print the calendar or refer to it digitally. We will also post the Lenten practice for the day on our Facebook page.
Use this time during Lent, especially as we return to the sanctuary for worship this month, to refocus your spiritual life and allow the Holy Spirit to come into your life even more.
