Lent Devotional - New Life Rising
Lent is the time of anticipation, waiting and repentance from Ash Wednesday until Easter. It consists of rich sorrow and beauty. A time where we are reminded of our scant humanity, of the depth of our sin, the egregious cost paid to remove it, and the wondrous joy of being, not just exonerated, but fully forgiven, set free, welcomed and loved.
Though our tradition does not strictly adhere to Lent, it is still a wonderful opportunity for us to set aside a period of time for repentance, worship, and preparation for the coming joy of Easter. Read more on Lent here.
This year we are using the devotional called "New Life Rising: Devotions on the Journey from Death to Life". The devotional helps us to, "journey through Lent and Easter [and] allows us to wonder what needs to die in order to lead to vibrant [spiritually rich] life." Please join us by grabbing a copy in our sanctuary or read online here.
