Lenten  Habits

The Christian observance of Lent provides forty days, not counting Sundays, to anticipate the promises of Easter.  Some traditions include daily quiet time to read and study the enduring themes of the gospels, the teachings of Jesus, his parables.

Some traditions advocate “giving up something dear to us” as a way of recalling the sacrifice that Rabbi Jesus made, to keep his message clear and focused, even though this would cost him his life.

At Yeamans Park church we mark the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 7:00 pm.  We worship with prayer, scripture reading, and the imposition of ashes to our foreheads.  In this way we reflect on our own mortality.

In April, Holy Week calls our attention to the Palm Sunday entry into Jerusalem of Jesus and his small band of followers, during the Jewish celebration of the Passover.  After a few days, Rabbi Jesus was arrested, charged with blasphemy and sedition, and put to death on a cross, Rome’s symbol of its power over its Jewish subjects.

Finally, the Easter promise.  The tomb was empty.  His followers were amazed to learn that “death was not the last word.”   Jesus had promised not to leave them orphaned, and his Spirit lived on in their lives, lives on into the present day.

These forty days, it’s up to you to decide how you will observe Lent.  May this season connect you with the enduring Spirit of Christ, with grace, peace, and joy.
