Wednesday, February 22nd, is Ash Wednesday, the formal start to the season of Lent that culminates in our Resurrection celebration services on Easter Sunday, April 9th. Lent, taken from the Old English word meaning ‘springtime’, is a spiritual spring-cleaning of sorts. It is a time when the church together raises the windows and invites a fresh breeze of God’s Spirit to blow through our lives. It is a season of intentional inquiring as to the places our hearts are searching for satisfaction. It is a journey along the road of thoughtful and costly fasting and repentance for our sin, and all the ways that we are laying up treasure in places other than God’s Kingdom.
