What is your desire for Lent this year?
Lent is often a time of greater reflection and prayer, and generally a time when we make attempts to grow closer to God through disciplines. As we walk with Jesus to the cross, we have a heightened awareness of how much he did for us. This moves our heart in many ways. Specifically, we can come to a greater spiritual depth. Our troubles are small in comparison to what Jesus suffered for us. And because we know God’s love is eternal, no struggle of ours needs to be seen as final. In essence, by God’s grace, Lent helps us to grow deeper and into better people. This is just what our world needs.
We have planned options for you to enter this Lenten season with intention and prayer. Whether you choose to participate with the prayer of a photograph on social media or you accept the invitation to learn meditative prayer, be encouraged. You are invited to journey with others in your Sheridan family in one or all of these opportunities.
