Today is Ash Wednesday and it begins our journey of Lent together. Read the introduction and answer these questions in the comments.
This Lent, I have decided to pull back from the news and also Social Media, to go on this journey and I wanted to invite you on this adventure…
What is Lent?
Lent is the six weeks leading up to Easter and it is a time of surrender and pilgrimage across the Church. It is a time of preparation, reconciliation and fasting. It begins on Ash Wednesday (26 Feb) which is 46 days before Easter Sunday. The tradition of Lent does not include Sunday’s as a part of the 40 days, as a day of rest.
I want to let go of some things and I wanted to invite you along on the journey. Each Monday, I will send a short video encouragement through as well as the instructions for the study that week. Then you can follow along with the devotional for the days of the week or even just one day to work through the exercises.
The download of Seek can be purchased here.
For discussion and accountability answer the following questions from today’s video.
- What are you giving up this Lent?
- What are you doing today to signify the beginning of this journey together?
Enjoy taking the time to surrender in the lead up to Easter.
