Lent at St. Paul

03.07.19 | Glorify God | by Laurel Fortuna

    Lent lasts for the 40 days leading up to Easter on April 21. This is a time for Christians to commit to a season of reflection and sacrifice through prayer, fasting and giving. 

    Fasting can take the form of giving up a meal, but it can also mean giving up something else in your life that has come between you and God. The key is to replace the time you would have spent eating or doing something like watching TV with prayer, reflection, scripture or quiet time with God. 

    Lent is a time to sacrificially give beyond what you normally offer. This can be done financially or by committing to serve in a greater capacity.
