You can’t conceive, my child, nor can I or anyone, the appalling strangeness of the mercy of God.
-Graham Greene

Lent (“40” in Latin) is a 40-day season of spiritual engagement and renewal in which the Christian community anticipates celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. In repentance, prayer, Scripture reading, fasting, and then Easter celebration, we follow Jesus to the cross, and rejoice in his resurrection. Whether you are only beginning to explore the claims of Jesus, or have been a Christian for quite some time, Lent is a perfect season to allow God to shape your life around the cross and empty tomb of Christ in fresh ways.
