Get Ready! It's Almost Here! Have You Planned For It???

Yes, Lent begins one week from tomorrow. This annual period of reflection, self-examination and repentance lasts for six weeks, so we can prepare our hearts for the journey to the cross and the empty tomb.

The time to think about Lent is now ... not on Ash Wednesday. What do you want the next six weeks to be like? What do you want to read? What disciplines do you want to take on? What plans will you make to get closer to God? What habits of your life need examining or reforming?

There are a variety of resources for you to pick up at church to help you with this ... our annual parish Lent brochure, Forward Day by Day devotional, an Episcopal Relief and Development devotional, and the always-engaging Lent poster by Jay Sidebotham. These are useful tools to help you chart your course for a Holy Lent.
