Lent is the 40 day period before Easter and represents the days Jesus spent in the wilderness preparing for His ministry to begin. Christians mark the season by devoting themselves to prayer, fasting and service to others.
To deepen our experience in this special season, we are compiling a Devotion Guide with inspirational thoughts for each day and we want our church members to participate. To do so, please write up to two brief devotionals, each including a scripture reference, your brief original thought about that scripture, and the first few lines of a prayer for the day.
Please submit your devotion(s) to the Worship Director by Sunday, January 24, 2010. You may submit it in by hand delivery or by emailing it to Sue@AustinFCOG.org.
The Devotion Guides will be available on February 15 before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2010.
