… Congregational Lenten Journey of Faith (2022)
“Parables, Prayers & Promises”
Ash Wednesday (March 2nd) to Easter (April 17th)
The Season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes on Easter Sunday. The word Lent comes from an old English expression meaning lengthening, which refers to the increasing number of daylight hours this time of year.
In the Christian tradition, the 40-day period of Lent is a time of preparation and spiritual journeying toward Easter. (Lent is actually 46 days long, as Sundays are not counted.) During Lent Christians are encouraged to dedicate time each day to learn about Jesus – his teachings, ministry, and life events – and to reflect upon their own faith journey.
