Today’s Christians embrace a wide variety of practices during the season of Lent. From giving up sweets to embracing new spiritual practices, there are many ways to walk through the season of introspection and repentance that Lent represents.
Regardless of how we choose to observe Lent, it is primarily a season of focus. Whether we choose to abstain from a thing or a habit for this six weeks, or add a new dimension to our spiritual lives, or engage in some sort of weekly discipline, our goal is to focus on Jesus and the coming remembrance of his crucifixion and resurrection.
At this week’s New Wineskins gathering, we’ll talk about various ways of observing the Lenten season, how those practices help us focus on the Passion narrative, and discuss possible ways we as a community might engage the season together.
Join us Sunday, Feb. 26 in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company as we examine our Lenten practices and the deeper meanings behind them. Add your voice to the conversation!
Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm
Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
