Preparing for Lent! Why?

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 always enjoy hearing...

from you. It's not often I see a kindred spirit of devotion from a different tradition. People make great divisions, and yes, people distinguish themselves in contrast to other traditions. And I guess it must be so to attract as many to the gospel as are called. In our weakness some are of Paul, some are of Peter and some are of James, yet all these are of Jesus. I guess even in this weakness, God's strength is perfected. Grace!

In this week I should have a few of the Sundays in Lent Studies formatted for the group as we get closer to Lent. You will see how I've made great use of the 40 day theme.
