Welcome to the church season of Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter. Many people take this season as an opportunity to deepen their relationship with God through adding new spiritual practices and/or letting go of (fasting from) habitual indulgences.
If you are looking for ways to add meaning to your Lenten season, consider one of these devotions, reflections, or activities. Remember, you don’t have to start these at the very beginning, or continue them all the way through to Easter. Try one out for a day or a week and see how it helps you.
