Dear Family in Christ,
Lent - a "lengthening" of days is the origin of the word. In the life of the church, the 40 day season is about allowing the Lord to stretch our own spirits. As we draw closer to Him in worship and prayer, and in meditation on His Word, we are saying to worldly things that they are less important than God in our lives. And we come clean with the Lord and with others, and admit where we have fallen short.
So we approach Lent like runners getting ready for the Austin marathon this weekend: it's gonna be hard, but it's gonna feel meet and right to do. And Easter Day is our finish line. We will know reconciliation with the Lord and with others, as we give thanks at that finish line for what Jesus did for us: He died so that we might live.
