Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
2020 Lent season is coming. ASH WEDNESDAY is February 26th, the beginning of Lent. Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, April 11th. Lent is a time of Bible reading, prayer, 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.
I’d like to encourage you to join this godly practices throughout this Lent season in 2020. There is no doubt that if you take the Lenten spirit of Bible reading, prayer, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter to heart, you will be blessed by a richer faith life and have all the more reason to celebrate the resurrection of Christ at Easter.
So we will do ’40 Days Walking with God’ for a richer faith life during this Lent season. We will read the same pages each day. The whole church will read the Bible according to the schedule during this lent period. If you missed the chance to join “Daily Bible Reading Campaign” due to your personal reason, this will be a great chance to join a faith adventure for yourself. Please write in your OWN journal every day if you can, based on your reflection after reading the Bible and answering these two questions:
1. Who is God to me in today’s word? 2. What lesson is God teaching me in today’s word?
I imagine you know how helpful writing your thoughts in a journal can be for your soul. Even though your hand writes the words in your journal your journal will in turn, transform your heart, mind, and soul. The most important thing to remember is to focus on your journey only and record those personal thoughts in your journal. Please try to refrain from writing about other things. We hope to be able to delve deeply into the subject matter.
Together, our church family, will celebrate our God, who is still working actively among our lives on Sunday and throughout the week. We will use this time to observe what is happening in our minds, hearts and souls, personally and how that translates to our church family.
Please prayerfully prepare for this new and exciting journey: 40 Days of Walking with God! Have a blessed Lent!!!
Your companion in Christ,
