This week's prayer theme: Journey

"You are not on a journey to God, you are on a journey WITH God"    Steve Maraboli

On Wednesday last week we acknowledged the start of Lent by being marked with ashes on our foreheads.

But what is Lent? Lent is the six weeks (40 days not including Sundays) leading up to Easter, the most important festival in the Christian calendar.

Lent is the Christian season of spiritual preparation before Easter. During Lent, many Christians observe a period of fasting, repentance, self-denial, and spiritual discipline.

Take a moment to think about and confirm to yourself;

How am I observing Lent this year?
