This coming Sunday, February 14th, is the First Sunday in Lent.  Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter.  In Western Christianity, Ash Wednesday (February 10th this year), marks the first day or the start of the Season of Lent, which begins forty days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count, making the Lenten Season forty-six days long).  This year, Easter falls on Sunday, March 27th.  Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ by observing a period of fasting (fasting applies to more than food and includes giving up anything meaningful in our lives for a limited time; for example, one could give up television, Facebook, golf, etc.).  Repentance, moderation, and spiritual discipline (prayer and Bible study) are also means of observing Lent.  The purpose of observing the Season of Lent is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ—His suffering and His sacrifice; His life, death, burial and resurrection.  Not all Christian traditions observe Lent; the Season of Lent is mostly observed by the Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian (including Cumberland Presbyterian, though not every congregation), and Anglican denominations; and also by the Roman Catholic Church.  Eastern Orthodox churches observe the Lenten Season, but on a different timetable than Western Christianity.  The Bible does not mention the observance of Lent, however, the practice of repentance and mourning in ashes is found in Second Samuel 13:19, Esther 4:1, Job 2:8, Daniel 9:3, and Matthew 11:21.  The forty day period for the Season of Lent comes from Jesus having spent forty days in the wilderness in preparation for His earthly ministry following His baptism.  Our observance of Lent is intended to both help us prepare for the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday, as previously mentioned, and to help us prepare for the ministry we do in the name of Jesus Christ.  Sundays are not included in the Lenten Season because Lent is a season of fasting, in which we focus of the sufferings and death of Jesus, and Sundays are feast days, on which we focus on Christ’s resurrection.  My prayer for you during this Season of Lent is that it be a very reflective and meaningful time for you.

           Beginning this Sunday afternoon, February 14th, Joanna and I will be out of town for a few days; we will return Wednesday evening,  February 17th.  While I will not be in town, if you need me feel free to contact me via cell phone (205-533-2001).

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Learning the unforced rhythms of grace,

                                                                                                                   Pastor Mike
