Publisher's Description

Contemporary Christians, ancient practices, deeper faith.


Overview


Liturgical churches help lead the faithful to deeper, biblical lessons through seasons in order to prepare for major Christian observances. Through experience and practice, the 40 days of Lent can help Christians to prepare spiritually for the central moment of the Christian year: Easter.

Yet many Christians have not prepared for the joys of Easter by simplifying the life of faith, deepening prayer and Bible reading, practicing Christian disciplines, and engaging in a sacrificial life. A liturgical Lent makes a profound difference in a believer s life. Even if liturgy has not been part of your tradition, you can learn from its practice.


Table of Contents


SCRIPTURE: Matthew 6:5 18; Mark 1:35 41; Ephesians 5:15 20; Colossians 3:1 4, 12 17
