The Season of Lent

The Season of Lent is a valuable practice in the Christian life. It is the forty days of special devotion from Ash Wednesday to Easter. Lent is the spiritual journey we take with Christ when he turns toward Jerusalem risking capture, arrest and trial. We figuratively count ourselves to be traveling with the disciples who accompany Jesus on his journey toward the cross.

Ash Wednesday is February 18th  Three service times are available at Grace Church for the people of the Alvin area: 7:00 A.M., Noon, and 7:00 P.M. In the penitential Ash Wednesday Service, we offer the prayer called the Litany of Penitence, and hear the assurance of God’s forgiveness. Prior to this prayer, people have the chance to come forward as a sign of humility, and of our mortality, to have ashes imposed on their foreheads. These ashes, are  made from the dried palm fronds of Palm Sunday the previous year, burned, cooled, and ground into a black dust. A small cross is drawn on our foreheads to acknowledge that God is the Holy One, and we are God’s finite creatures in need of divine grace and mercy.

With this act, we begin the forty days of Lent with the Sundays in Lent: a season in which we choose special practices of devotion. We are invited to observe Lent by self-examination and repentance, by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating of God’s holy Word.  People take on acts of kindness or service. Others give up foods, habits or luxuries as disciplines of self-denial during this season. It is a time of deepening our love and service to God and our neighbor.
