Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, is the Christian season of preparation leading up to Easter.  It is a time when many Christians observe a period of fasting, repentance, self-denial, or spiritual disciplines.  The purpose is to designate a greater focus on Jesus Christ, more specifically his sacrifice, life, suffering, death, and resurrection.

During the 40 days leading up to Easter (not including Sundays), Christians who observe Lent usually make a commitment to fast, or to give up something such as a smoking, drinking, swearing, watching T.V., or maybe even certain foods.  Some Christians take the time to add a Lenten discipline, such as reading the Bible, adding a devotional, or spending  additional time in prayer using Lent to draw closer to God.  I write a blog.  I go through my day looking for a “doxology moment” (a moment of praise to God).  I take a picture of my “Doxology Moment” and blog about it and post on my site.  Pastor T’s Blog

Regardless how you absolve to Lent, The goal is to strengthen the faith and spiritual disciplines of the observer and develop a closer relationship with God.  I’m praying for your’s!
