What Are You Giving Up For Lent??
Today Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the lent season for many in the Chrisitan Community. Lent starts every year on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday.
Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. The purpose is to set aside time for reflection on Jesus Christ - his suffering and his sacrifice, his life, death, burial and resurrection.
