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?"

I have to admit...

Since I am rather new to my Lutheran faith, that I am still exploring the meaning, intent and tradition of the Lenten Season. I have a few more things I've found ready to post in the next few days and I do hope I've found a sincere middle ground that whether a person is Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical or Orthodox, there can be an equal appreciation for the events that take place during the Christian Calendar. Thanks for your input. It's always nice to hear from you.
