Preparing Our Hearts for Easter
Whether you are just beginning to discover the church calendar or have been enjoying it for years, the season of lent will probably sound familiar.
It's the 40 days period (minus Sundays) between Ash Wednesday and Easter that helps us prepare our hearts to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
This year, I'm using the metaphor of the garden to help engage the classic hallmarks of lent: fasting (pulling weeds), praying (watering growth), and giving (sharing the harvest).
Wont you join me?
