Your Lenten Journey

Highlighting your personal Lenten journey can be a meaningful and transformative experience that deepens your spiritual growth and draws you closer to God. Here are some ways you can highlight your personal Lenten journey:

1. Set spiritual goals: Reflect on areas of your life where you feel disconnected from God or where you struggle with sin. Set specific spiritual goals for Lent that will help you grow closer to God and deepen your faith.

2. Daily prayer and reflection: Get up a half hour earlier to make time for daily prayer and reflection during Lent.

3. Fasting and self-denial: Consider fasting from something meaningful to you during Lent, such as a favorite food or activity. Use this time of self-denial to focus on your relationship with God and to cultivate a spirit of discipline and self-control.

4. Acts of charity: Use Lent as a time to focus on giving back to those in need. Consider volunteering at a local charity or church, donating to a cause you care about, or performing random acts of kindness for others.

5. Read the book of Mark: Pastor Fredrick will be focusing the Lenten Sermons on Mark.

6. Engage in reading the Pause for Lent: 40 Words or 40 Days. Watch on Facebook Pastor Fredrick will be reflecting on selected reading.

7. Worship: Plan to be part of Holy Thursday Worship. Holy Thursday is the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. Then celebrate Easter Morning at the Sunrise Service, watching as morning breaks anew.

8. Reflect on your journey: Regularly reflect on your personal Lenten journey and how you are growing closer to God.

By intentionally highlighting your personal Lenten journey through prayer, fasting, reflection, and acts of charity, you can deepen your relationship with God and experience spiritual transformation during this holy season.
