Welcome to our new page of Lenten Practices! Perhaps you’re not exactly sure of what Lent is all about…. “The Give-and-Take of Lent” might answer your questions…
“Lent is a time for us to focus on Jesus and our Christian discipleship. What does it mean to follow the One who lived, died and rose from the dead for our salvation?
Lent is a chance for us to practice, every year, focusing on God in Christ. We remember God as immersed in earthly life with our earthly practices.”
|The give-and-take of Lent:
Lenten practices can be about giving things up or taking things on. In either case, the point is to draw closer to God as Jesus draws nearer to the cross.
-Daily Bible reading
-Delighting in God’s gifts
The first two practices below are ones we are focusing on for 2017 here at First Presbyterian. In addition to the handouts, there will be special classes offered on Sunday mornings for those who choose to follow one of those disciplines and would like to share their thoughts and experiences.
