In two weeks, we will begin the season of Lent as we begin the Lenten Journey to Holy Week. This season is a preparation for Holy Week and a reminder of its significance for us as Christians. On Wednesday night, February 17, we begin the season of Lent with our Ash Wednesday service. This will be a service of word and song. In the place of our normal Wednesday night prayer service, this service will be available through YouTube.
This is the beginning of a season of contemplation and reflection. In the midst of our busyness, this season is an opportunity to slow down and think about our faith and the spiritual practices that could facilitate our growth. I am challenged to move beyond my shallow spiritual life and commit to spiritual practices that will deepen my spiritual walk. Perhaps this will be the Lenten Season where you recommit to deeper spiritual growth and more consistent ministry to others. May this be a Lenten Journey that changes our lives!
