Lent is a forty-day season of spiritual reflection, prayer, and fasting from practices that lead us to less than the fullness of life. Our focus this Lent will be “Risking Forgiveness.” Forgiving others and humbly asking for forgiveness are central to our life of faith in the example of Christ. The work of forgiveness is as hard as it is freeing and life-giving. It is a spiritual journey that offers true liberation and peace. May our Lenten worship, Lenten devotional, and Book Study enrich our prayer lives, deepen our faith, and lead us closer to the power of the One who is able to roll away all stones and open doors to life made truly whole and new.
