To everything, there is a season.
Lent is a season of the church year in which we have an opportunity to practice our faith with more intentionality. Throughout the centuries, this has been done in many ways. Lent has been used as a season of discipleship and learning in preparation for baptism, an opportunity for repentance and penance, and as a time of walking with Christ throughout his final and most difficult days.
This year, we’re going to consider how all these different ways of thinking about Lent can help guide our faith in the different “seasons” of our life. At Maxwell Street, we’re hoping to be cultivating a growing church – that is a church that is made up of disciples who are growing in their faith and the ways that they practice it. No matter what season of life you find yourself in at this point, there are ways that you can enrich your faith and life. Each Sunday of Lent, we’ll be exploring some of these themes and practices. The season starts with Ash Wednesday and will conclude with our Easter Services on April 21st.
