As we move into the season of Lent, the rich colors of purple are brought into our worship spaces mixed with the more muted and neutral tones of gray. We enter into a season of intentional prayer and penitence.
I can’t say that I love the season of Lent but it is a time for me to deepen my faith and explore the more contemplative side of spirituality. When we follow the scriptural passages of the season we hear the stories of Jesus ministry and sacrifice here on earth. And yet, Sundays in Lent are also seen and celebrated through the lens of the coming season of Easter. We always keep a glimpse of the resurrection ahead of us!
Our deeds and prayer always come to the forefront of my life. It is deeply personal and communal for us. We pray and live out our faith in a very intentional way during Lent. Maybe that is why it is so special for me. The first reading of lent this year is from Matthew’s Gospel chapter six which speaks of our deeds and prayer.
1 “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.
2 When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get.
3 But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.
4 Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
5 “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.
6 But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
Take time to Let Lent live through you this year in our church wide studies and in our personal lives.
Our vision is to connect people to the vibrant love and hope of God in Christ. Grow them into an exciting faith that transforms their lives. Share the love of God with the world through passionate service and partnerships within our community to transform the world.
