THE SEASON OF LENT.  As the holy season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and prepares us for the celebration of our Lord’s resurrection and ours in Him, let us embrace the disciplines of Lent with enthusiasm and expectation.  Although not exhaustive by any means, here are some practical ways to embrace those disciplines:


 + attend Liturgies on the weekends (corporate prayer)

 + attend midweek Lenten Liturgies (Wednesdays at 12Noon and 7:30PM) (corporate prayer)

 + use Lenten devotional booklets in addition to Portals of Prayer and other devotional resources

 + devote more time in your day for prayer (individual prayer)

 + pray for the needs on the Prayer List

 + take time to make entries for the Prayer List on Redeemer’s website


 + give up a food, certain foods, or a type of food during the season

 + abstain from a meal and use the time to pray (Be sure to do so respecting your body and only if your health permits it.).

 + give up a favorite internet site or social media platform

+ give up a favorite recreational activity

 + give up over-working and recalibrate your schedule and life


 + increase your weekly financial giving in worship

 + use funds that you would have used for favorite foods or activities to help the poor and needy around you

 + identify clothing that you are no longer using and donate it

 + volunteer your time to help people in need

“Every One His Witness.”
