Lent is marked by a time of prayer and preparation to celebrate Easter. Since Sundays celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, the six Sundays that occur during Lent are not counted as part of the 40 days of Lent, and are referred to as the Sundays in Lent. The number 40 is connected with many biblical events, but especially with the forty days Jesus spent in the wilderness preparing for His ministry by facing the temptations that could lead him to abandon his mission and calling. Christians today use this period of time for introspection, self examination, and repentance.
The Next Sacred Space:
During Lent, community is especially important. When you are in the wilderness, gathering together means survival. For us, we do this by participating in what we call a Friday Feast. We have two times we get together to eat. Please join us!
