Reflections of Faith
Lent typically begins in the mid to late February when the winter chill is present and uncomfortable. The cloudy sky fits all too well in this time of repentance and reflection.
But we know that there is an end to this season of Lent. There will be sunshine and warmth to come, and the promise of renewed life.
We celebrate this renewal at Easter when Jesus rises from the dead! And we see it as the flowers begin to bloom, and the trees return to their lives with vibrant green leaves.
This year, Lent begins on February 22nd. Easter will arrive on April 9th. And between then, there's 40 days to reflect and renew ourselves.
How will you spend your Lenten season this year?
