During this six weeks, we will explore the theme of Lent through a brief journey in the gospel of Matthew. To accompany our journey, each member will be given a Lenten journal to accompany the season. Someone describe Lent as “a season of preparation, self-reflection and repentance when we seek to literally ‘turn around’ and realign our lives and focus toward God. It is a time to give up things as well as take on new life-giving practices, helping us rid ourselves of distractions and our own selfish desires. By doing so, we seek to live and love as more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.” Our self-reflection will focus on simplicity and contentment. While taking inventory of the extravagant life God has blessed us with, we make a pledge to that says with God, we have more than enough.
