the season of lent

  Lent is a time of spiritual renewal. It is a season of preparation during the
40 days
and six Sundays before Easter. Lent is a time when we
reflect upon the love of God and the gift of God’s grace.  
It has a solemn beginning with Ash Wednesday, which is on Feb. 17 this year.  

For this Lenten season, the PC(USA) offers 3 different devotionals
to walk with you to Easter Sunday.

The Way to Shalom

A Lenten Journey to Peace and Wholeness

While Lent is a time for prayer, fasting, service and contemplation, at the top of our list should be a prayer for the acquisition of peace. This year for the season of Lent, we invite you to reflect upon the gift of shalom, the Hebrew word for peace. In the Bible, shalom can be translated not only as peace, but also as tranquility, security, well-being, health, welfare, completeness and safety. How can we receive this gift of shalom and, in turn, bestow it upon the world?

tread lightly for lent

The Presbyterian Hunger Program strives to walk with people in moving towards sustainable choices that restore and protect all of God’s children and creation. As people of faith, we seek to “serve and preserve” God’s world. However, some of our collective choices have led to a changing global climate, which translates to warmer temperatures, rising sea-levels, and severe storms, just to name a few. To turn this tide, we must commit to treading lightly on God’s Earth. In Lent, we slow down, take time, and examine our internal spiritual lives and the way we live out our Christian faith in the world around us. Our hope is that this Lenten calendar will be the beginning of actions intended to create more mindful behaviors throughout the year.
