Looking Toward Lent
We know, we know, it’s Fat Tuesday. Lent doesn’t start until tomorrow. But we wanted to share a couple of links that you might find helpful as you enter the season.
If you’ve ever wondered “Why do we even observe Lent?” – you’re not alone. There’s some great background, explanation, and what-it-means-for-us-today in
this post from Glenn Packiam. He’s the pastor of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO.
Or, if you’re looking for a creative way to walk through the season you might try picking one thing from this post by Rachel Held Evans. She’s compiled 40 different things you could try during Lent.
Finally, don’t forget that you can join one of the three Ash Wednesday observances tomorrow, February 22, at FN. Come at 7:00 am, noon, or 6:00 pm for a half-hour time of reflection.
