Pray, Fast, Love
Lent is the season between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. During the hard season of Lent, we are reminded of our humanity and our total reliance on God. There are 40 days in Lent not including Sundays, because Sundays remain celebrations of the resurrection throughout the season. The church encourages spiritual practices or disciplines during Lent such as prayer, Bible studies or devotions, fasting, and worship. Adding spiritual practices during Lent can instill habits of faith that provide an experiential understanding of spiritual truth and nurture the inclination to sustain a Lenten practice throughout the year or for a lifetime.
