Observing Lent

Posted 9:26 PM by
If you are not sure how to observe Lent this year, try doing one thing
: Commit to attend worship every Sunday in Lent.  (Even if you are traveling, it's almost always possible to find a church service to attend on Sunday or Saturday evening.) Note how you feel after several weeks of regular worship...more grounded in what's truly important?  More calm?  More connected to your faith community? 
Lenten Resources:
Two different daily meditation booklets are available at church (both free).  Pick one up and see what it does for you.  We also have "Lent in a Box" kits, with daily and weekly observances for individuals and families. 
Lent in a Box
If you have not picked up your Lent in a Box, be sure to do so this coming Sunday. This new resource is available for families (and individuals) and offers different ways for all to engage the season of Lent. Prayer, fasting and alms-giving cards will offer suggests for all to do one simple daily task. Other once-weekly activities assist everyone in engaging scripture and a faith conversation together. 
If you pick up your box before Sunday, March 5, please be sure to take a bulb from the basket in Founders' Hall - a delayed shipment.
One box per household until the supplies are gone - there should be plenty for all!
