“Our God comes; he does not keep silence.”
Psalm 50:3

If you’ve already signed up– I’m glad you’re here.  If you still need to follow along– it’s easy and you can get started here. Some of you have asked if you can share this blog. Absolutely.

The Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday, and it lasts until the Saturday before Easter Day. The last week of Lent is called Passion Week, which includes both Maundy Thursday (the institution of the Lord’s Supper) and Good Friday (the crucifixion of our Lord).  Reminiscent of Jesus’ fasting for forty days in the wilderness, the Lenten season lasts forty days (not counting Sundays).

Lent is a time to ask God to confront our own mortality and sinfulness; to ask Him to show us our need for grace; to grow in repentance; and, to reflect on the amazing truth of the Church’s participation in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This Lent, I am especially praying that the Lord would lead me to be compelled by the love of Jesus Christ
