Lent began as a reminder of the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness. It is the 40 days that lead up to Easter, and Christians are invited to fast and pray during this time leading up to the remembrance of Christ on the cross and the resurrection.
This year, together with our denomination, the BIC, we have created a Lenten Devotional that invites us all to fast and pray in various forms throughout this season. As parents, it is easy to put ourselves last in every area of life. Let's challenge one another to put our walk with God first and really prioritize spending time with him. You can download the full Lenten Devotional below, print it off, share it around.
