Lent Begins Wednesday
       February 17

The season of Lent is a wonderful time to start a new spiritual practice, such as reading your Bible, attending a Bible Study, praying intentionally, or starting a family devotional time. Lent begins with Ash Wednesday (Feb. 17) and lasts forty days (not including the Sundays). Sundays are excluded because those are the days we remember Jesus’ resurrection. Every Sunday is a little celebration of Easter and thus a time of joy.

Historically, the Christian church has recognized Lent as a time to focus our attention on how we are living for God. It is a time to examine our lives to see how we can be in a better relationship with God. The forty days of Lent are symbolic of Jesus’ time in the wilderness before he began his ministry. During that time, he was tempted; but stayed true to God.
