Lent is the period of 40 days (not including Sundays) that leads up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. Just as we prepare for the incarnation of Christ in the season of Advent, we prepare for Good Friday and Easter in Lent.
Knowing that MRC is in a season of making significant decisions (e.g. Vision 2020 and Mission/Vision), our Lent preparation this year will be a focus on Prayer, particularly the Lord’s Prayer from Matthew 6. Each Sunday of Lent we’ll look at one of the petitions of the prayer.
