This Lent we have focused in worship on practices that help us to draw closer to Christ as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter.
One such practice is to spend some time at the end of each day thinking about the gifts we’ve received during the day. This is an excellent habit to be in, and doing this just before bedtime helps us to relax for the night. Counting our blessings each day is a certain way to draw closer to Christ. What are you most grateful for today?
As we continue our Lenten practices for the next several weeks, there are a few activities that we can look forward to.
On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord, Jesus Christ. While they were wondering this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightening stood beside them. “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here. He is risen.” Luke 24:1-4,5b-6a
