LENT is a time of preparation for the great celebration of Christ’s Resurrection at Easter. As we do that, it is entirely fitting that we contemplate how this life-changing event changes our lives personally. The guiding questions are these: What are the things we need to let go of in order to follow Christ more closely? What are the things we need to embrace as children of God?
These questions speak to the idea of repentance, which simply means turning away from one way of living to another. Often that process involves confession of some sin or another that gets in the way of following Jesus. Always it involves a call to humility and praise — that is, understanding who we are before God and living lives that reflect God’s love and light in the world.
We have a lot planned to help you do that during this holy season of repentance and preparation.
