Preparing Your Heart for Lent
PRAY | FAST | GIVE
Lent is a season of slowing down, to walk with Christ, and truly reflect on the sacrifice He made for us. It is a moving and introspective season of the church year. Worship during this season is remarkably different and the hope that comes from Jesus' resurrection on Easter is is experienced even more joyously when we engage in Lenten practice.
ADDITIONAL LENT RESOURCES
Biola's Center for Christianity, Culture, and the Arts offers a FREE online Lent Project designed to aid you in pausing each day to reflect on the meaning of the season.
"The journey through Lent into Easter is a journey with Jesus. We are baptized into his life, self-giving, and death; then, we rise in hope to life transformed. This Lent, communities are invited to walk with Jesus in his Way of Love and into the experience of transformed life."
This year, the Lenten Meditations will focus on that transformation. These reflections are organized into Episcopal Relief & Development’s priorities: Women, Children and Climate, and include a focus on our Disaster Resilience & Response work. We invite you to read them throughout Lent and share with those close to you.
Lent Madness began in 2010 as the brainchild of the Rev. Tim Schenck. In seeking a fun, engaging way for people to learn about the men and women comprising the Church’s Calendar of Saints, Tim came up with this unique Lenten devotion. Combining his love of sports with his passion for the lives of the saints, Lent Madness was born on his blog “Clergy Family Confidential” which has subsequently moved locations and become “Clergy Confidential.”
