Lent is a special time the Church sets aside for us. It is a time of reflection, prayer, and repentance, which allows us to prepare for the greatest event in history – the resurrection of Jesus.
The 40 Days of Lent correspond to the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness immediately following His Baptism. My speculation is that these 40 days were a time of reflection and prayer for Jesus, and perhaps a time when the parables may have been created. These parables are the greatest stories ever told concerning God and God’s activity in the world and serve as wonderful illustrations which teach and guide us through our own faith journey.
This Lent we hope that you will join us for these worship opportunities, as we journey with Jesus, focusing on these great stories, and learning what impact they have for our lives today. Let us take the time we need this year to center ourselves in prayer, reflection, and repentance, so that this holiest time of the year will touch us even more and we will comprehend what God has done in Jesus’ journey. – Pastor Craig Johnson
