The Lenten Season begins on February 10, 2016. Lent is a period of 40 days, excluding Sundays, that is a time of preparation, fasting, reflection and drawing near to God. The forty day period represents Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness. Christians around the world, participate in Lenten Spiritual Disciplines such as denial (giving up something that is important to them), intentional new practices (taking on something that draws them closer to God and invites them into self-examination and reflection) and more.
For Lent, I’ll be taking on the #ReThinkChurch photo project and blogging about my experiences. If you’d like to join me on the journey, you can find more information here and follow along on Twitter @umrethinkchurch.
