Reflect...it's Lent

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Since the earliest days of the church, Christians have prepared for Easter by observing Lent. Lent is much more than a time to give up unhealthy foods or bad habits; it's an opportunity to unplug from our regular patterns, look truthfully at ourselves, and approach God with repentance and gratitude.

This year, we invite you to take the time to deepen your understanding of God’s love by reflecting on Dr. Larry Crabb's new book, 66 Love Letters: A Conversation with God that Invites You into His Story.

Sign up for this free service and you will receive a short email reading for reflection every day during Lent's forty days. *

* Haven't observed Lent before?

It is the forty-day period before Easter (not including
Sundays) beginning on Ash Wednesday. This year Ash
Wednesday is February 17 and Easter Sunday is April 4.

The earliest Christians, during the apostolic era,
understood Lent as an opportunity to refocus
their lives, withdraw from usual practices,
and draw closer to Christ.

We invite you to deepen your understanding of the joy of Easter by observing a prayerful and reflective Lent. Click the link below to receive daily emails during Lent, containing passages from Dr. Crabb's new book to help you focus your thoughts and begin your own conversations with God.

Emails will begin on February 17.
