The irony isn't lost on us that this Lent, we are continuing to fast from our normal way of doing things. A year of masks, social distancing, and forced innovation has left us tired and longing for redemption and freedom. These 40 days leading up to Easter, we bury our hallelujahs and look with hope toward the resurrection.
During such difficult times, it has become crucial for us to rely on our toolbox of spiritual practices. During Lent, we invite you to explore the various ways you can experience and practice prayer in your daily lives. Prayer can engage all the senses as you connect with God, and our prayer is that you experience prayer anew using the suggested practices in this resource.
As we embark on this new season, be encouraged! Church certainly looks different this year, but the beautiful thing about it is we know God shows up in the new and the different. Even better, when we lean into the new and the different we might encounter God in ways we didn't even know possible before.
