Lent is the six-week period leading up to Good Friday, a traditional time for reflection, prayer and perhaps divesting ourselves of some of the things that distract us from the spiritual path. Mennonites don’t necessarily “give up something for Lent,” but many of us do try to focus in a more directed way on the message of Jesus during this quiet, solemn time of the year. If you’d like some help to structure your reflections during this time, there are a couple of resources. First, a Lenten Guided Prayer Resource, available in a series of weekly PDFs. (You will need to log-in.) Also, for families, there’s a Lent at Home booklet. Check it out, on the lobby table.
