Lent Offers Opportunities to Slowdown

Lent Offers Opportunities to Slowdown

Lent is a holy season of the church year, beginning with Ash Wednesday (March 6, 2019) and ending on Easter (April 21, 2019). It is a time of preparation for Easter through prayer, reflection, silence, repentance, reading, and growing in the grace of God. Many people see these 40 days as a time to refresh and renew their relationship with God and each other. It is a time to slowdown and to bring “springtime” into the soul burdened by the hate and fear in our world, conflicting human relations, and the lack of world peace. Join us for one or all of these programs during lent.
