What Are You Doing for Lent?


Lent is just over a week away (March 1 this year) and and I'm curious to hear what churches and individuals in the CRC are doing to mark this season.

Are you working through a good devotional? Do you plan to give something up? Or maybe start something new? Did you church start a new sermon series or is there a theme you are working around? What worship songs help you prepare?

Let's open up the discussion! I'll start us off by sharing my plans in the comments below.

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

In previous years I have given up various things (i.e. pop) for Lent but this year I am planning to finish reading through the Gospels (I'm currently in the middle of Luke). Lately I have been struck by how often Jesus talks about the importance of having faith. I'm going to be looking for specific ways this season to 'increase' my faith, maybe through bold giving or by listening more closely to the Spirit's leading. To do this, I'm hoping to be still more often (less media, tv, distractions).
