Lent means “Spring” and is the Christian season of repentance and preparation beginning with Ash Wednesday and finishing 40 days later (minus Sundays, which are little Easters) with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Good Friday and Easter Sunday).
Holiness simply means to be set apart for God and Lent is a time of practicing being set apart for and with God. We do this by reading our Bibles daily, by focusing our minds on the Lord (speaking to Him and listening for His reply throughout the day: in other words – praying) and trusting Him. We practice following His lead to forgive, give, love, bless, and to show compassion on whoever is in front of us, and by letting go of ways of thinking, doing, and being that work against God and His infinite love. Love for our brothers and sisters here and around the world is holiness.
Our Lenten Offering is collected on Palm Sunday to purchase supplies, clothes, and blankets for the children in Naskal Village, India. Our annual goal is at least $1000. Thank-you for giving generously for the children!
