Mars Hill is taking their community through a time of reflection this Lenten season. In an effort to help their community reflect upon and journey towards the cross, they have put together a booklet for their series of Lenten teachings. The booklet is designed to help facilitate a contemplative journey, including readings and space for reflection.
Coming from a very non-liturgucal background, the season of Lent has always been a little mysterious and foreign to me, but over the past few years I've felt a growing hunger to connect with a larger historical stream of my faith. I'm planning on using the booklet as a way of reflection this season, and if there's anyone else going through it, it would be great to connect.
May this Lenten season be one in which all of us awaken to the depth and richness of the cross, with a new a fresh and understanding.
Is anyone else doing anything to connect with the tradition and practice of Lent?
