March 1 begins the Church’s longest season of fasting, prayer, intentional service, and self-reflection. This season, known as Lent, is an opportunity for an annual return to the basics of our faith. In Lent we focus on what it truly means to follow Jesus.
If you’ve ever gone on a long distance hike, you know that the more time you take carefully packing your gear and charting your course, the more likely you are to have a successful and enjoyable trek. In a similar way, our journey towards Christ-likeness is a kind of spiritual hike, and Lent is the time we take to faithfully prepare ourselves for what lies ahead.
In Prepare: Lent 2017, Fr. Paul Donison invites us to ready ourselves for a holy Lent. Together, we will deal honestly and openly with our pain and brokenness, remembering that it is through suffering that God prepares us for the journey of faith. This two-day seminar will provide a time of honest self-evaluation before the Lord, and also invite the Spirit to heal us and free us from the sin and shame that holds us back from a life of faithfulness to Christ and his Kingdom.
Look below for RSVP and details about our guest speaker. We look forward to seeing you at Prepare: Lent 2017!
