"Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return"
During this special season we focus on the journey Jesus took to the cross. We spend time reflecting upon our sin, praying and going ourselves over to various practices of self-denial. All of this is to draw closer to our loving God by opening our lives more fully to him.
Spirituality During Lent
And he said to them all: "If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily, and follow me."
Lent Is Rooted In Jesus' 40 days
Lent is one of the oldest practices in the Christian Church. It is the 40 days leading up to Easter, not including Sundays. Rooted in the experience of Jesus fasting in the desert 40 days, the church is called to 40 days of prayer and fasting.
