Pastor’s History Lesson for the Week


“The Lenten Season”

 

Well, spring is supposed to be here soon.  Whether the weather chooses to cooperate or not, we know that this next month we will begin the Lenten season.  But what is the deal with Lent, where does it come from and why do we celebrate it?  Here in the United Methodist Church every year we celebrate the Lenten Season during the spring.  Lent is usually seen through the lens of soup suppers and extra services on Wednesday nights, and while those are great, it turns out that Lent is actually based on some very important Christian concepts.  The United Methodist Church has this to say about Lent on the UMC website:

 

“Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring." The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.  Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter" and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection.”

 

To put it succinctly, the purpose of Lent is to prepare one’s heart for the coming of Easter, to grow closer to God.  Just as we spend time beforehand celebrating Jesus’s birth in the lead up to Christmas, so too do we in the United Methodist Church do the same as we approach Jesus’s resurrection.  Whether you choose to celebrate Lent this year by giving something up, volunteering extra, or just placing an extra emphasis on remembering Christ’s sacrifice for us, know that Lent is a great opportunity to grow closer to your Lord. 

 

Hopefully you can join us for the Lenten services at our churches.  The details are in this bulletin and on the church website.  We would love to see you there!

 

Many Prayers for you and yours as we enter this new season,

 

-Pastor Jacob Hanson
