Reflections on Lent: Preparations

 

Lenten Preparations

As a people heavily rooted in the liturgical life of the church, our spidey senses are tingling. Lent is a week away. For some of us it is a welcomed time to empty and reorient our lives, for others it is a dreadful time of fasting and sacrifice, and for others it means weekly fish frys at church. This season, as part of our Lenten practice, the crew at Vital is posting reflections every Wednesday about giving our lives over to Jesus. Journey with us through this season of repentance, prayer, and self-denial as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of our crucified king.

 

This video comes from a church in Chicago where a friend of Greg serves. It helped us start thinking about Lent, we hope it helps you as well.

 

 

Ash Wednesday is coming up on March 1st. Will you be ready? A group Immanuel artists created this video to usher us into the season of Lent:
