LENT CALENDAR

The first page is an experiential calender:

Lent is a season in which we practice giving up something important in order to refocus our lives on God. By fasting from certain things, we practice dying to ourselves. And by refocusing our lives, living to God, we intentionally choose things that help us become the kind of people God desires us to be. This calendar suggests daily practices for fasting-from and living-to during the Lenten season

The second page gives you some scripture to wrestle with week by week:

Spend time each day in The Word. Reflect on the story of scripture that we find ourselves in. Reflect on the love and strength of our God who brings beauty out of the ashes.
