Lent is a time of reflection and preparation, a measured pause before the arrival of Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday and continues for forty days (excluding Sundays) ending in Easter. For centuries Christians have either given up or taken on something for Lent. These small daily sacrifices help believers turn their hearts to God and renew their faith.
At Greystone, we are asking you to think about a word each day of Lent. We will post a new word each day on Greystone’s Facebook page. (You will also find a list in your Sunday worship guide.) Use the word of the day in your prayers, consider taking a photo of something that reminds you of the word, use the word as a prompt for journal writing, or maybe the word reminds you of a quote or a picture. Let the word rest in your thoughts for the day. We hope that you will share your thoughts and pictures, poems and prayers with other church members. Use the comment section under the day’s word on Facebook to share your reflections each day of Lent.
Lent is a journey that is best undertaken with friends. We hope that you will take part in this Lenten experiment as we look toward Easter together as a church.
