Practicing Lent Week by Week

This study has three distinct sections:

Ash Wednesday and the two days following will reflect on the temptations of Christ in the desert from Luke 4:1-13.

– The next five weeks will concentrate on learning about and engaging five spiritual practices: prayer on Mondays, repentance on Tuesdays, love of neighbor on Wednesdays, connecting with the saints on Thursdays, and fasting and simplicity on Fridays.  Each week will also open with a biblical reflection on one of the practices.

– The last week will offer reflections on each of the days of Holy Week

The study is suitable for individuals as well as for congregations and small groups.
