We might think that the hope of Lent has to do with our hope that we will get through it, that we will come to the end of it. We might see Lent as an obstacle course to navigate in order to get to the celebration of Easter.
But while the Lenten season is indeed preparation for our Easter celebration, the hope of this season is that we will find our lives transformed by the many ways we encounter God’s Word, by the richness of the Scripture readings chosen to encourage, to challenge, to confront, to comfort. Focusing only on the end goal would cause us to miss so much along the way.
Each day we offer wonderful ways to nourish your heart, mind, and soul this Lenten season, both on our website and delivered right to your inbox.
