Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (in 2018: February 14th), marking the beginning of Lent, which is intended to be a time of self-denial, moderation, fasting, and the forsaking of sinful activities and habits.
Lent is the period of 40 days (which comes before Easter in the Christian calendar) set aside for reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. This year Lent starts on Feb 14th and Ends on Mar 29th.
We encourage each other to join in out UU Lent Practice of focusing on a word a day for spiritual growth and insight.
