Lent & Ash Sunday 2020

Pastor Patrick shares with us as we enter into the season of Lent. Lent is a time of 40 days (excluding Sundays) leading up to Easter Sunday. And the season of Lent has been traditionally a time to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the tomb. The Early church used this time to usually fast and focus more on Christ in their lives. In a sense cleansing and purify oneself in order to fully focus and remove any hindrance for Easter worship.

But what does this mean for us today? Is this just an outdated Church tradition that is usually only celebrated by Catholics? Is there relevance for us and our relationship with Christ in the 21st Century? Pastor Patrick shares from Paul’s letter to Philipi and from one of David’s Psalm to hope us understand this lenten season.
