Preparing for Lent! Why?

Mark Anthony's picture

Having been in more or less the Arminius Camp for over 25 years, I found the Lord calling me to serve within a Conservitive Lutheran Church, which is as you guessed, reformed. I like the balance the history of the church has labored over since 1530 AD. It has a great stability that is comforting to me. But I still have questions about some church traditions and holidays.

Since I will be teaching the Adult Bible Class at our local church during the Lent/Easter Season, I thought I would prepare a five week lesson plan explaining the history and purpose behind this holiday. There will also be a devotional theme to these lessons, hence the reason for Lent.

My reason for posting is to find like minded students of God's word to help in my understanding of Lent.

I will post the Lessons as I finish them, this will be fun as well as a learning experience. These can be found in a New Group, "Preparing for Lent! Why?"

Grace!

Great Article

Hello,

One of the best articles written about the Great Fast (Lent) was written by Mother Mary and Bishop Kallistos Ware for their translation of "The Lenten Triodion" (think of it as a hymn book for Lent). The article is called, "The Meaning of the Great Fast: The True Nature of Fasting." If you don't want to buy the book, you can read the article online by clicking here.

Enjoy!

You have revealed the fishermen as most wise
By sending down upon them the Holy Spirit
Through them You drew the world into Your net
O Lover of Man, Glory to You!" -Pentecost Troparion
