Lent is a season in the church calendar where many choose intentional spiritual practices to help them center on Jesus. This often includes letting go of something (fasting) and taking up something (a spiritual practice).
Lent 2022 starts on Ash Wednesday which is March 2nd and ends on Easter Sunday – April 17th.
Ash Wednesday reminds us of our human mortality – our need for Jesus as our savior to reconcile us to God. It’s important that this is how we start the season of lent – because it reminds us that we are not engaging in spiritual practices to earn God’s love, but because of God’s love. It’s only by receiving God’s grace that we can step into practices with joy and not obligation.
