‘Tis The Season: Lent

Lent, the forty-day season that terminates with Holy Saturday, began with Ash Wednesday. The forty days of Lent represent the forty days that Jesus spent fasting and resisting temptation by Satan in the desert following his baptism and before beginning his public ministry. Because all Sundays are held to be days of joy they are not counted as part of Lent, which is focused on repentance, sacrifice and fasting.

Colors of the Seasons

Lent is drawing to a close. April 2 is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. In the Methodist Church we continue to use purple, but for those who are interested we’ll take a brief look at the colors some other denominations use.

We’ll continue to look at more colors as the seasons–those inside, not outside the church–change. Stay tuned.
