February 18th, 2021 at 7:15 PM: What is Lent?
We would like to thank Dr Johannah Myers with Aldersgate United Methodist Church and Pastor Steven Saxe with Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd for last nights discussion on what Lent is. We thank Johannah for giving us such a great and concise overview of the 40 days of Lent. We enjoyed comparing some of the similarities of Lent, such as fasting, prayer and alms giving to the other faiths we have learned about in the past as well. With the help of Pastor Steven Saxe we were able to share and learn about the significance of the eggs with the season as well as see and learn a little bit of the history of the Pysanky Eggs which was fascinating. We would also like to thank Josie from California, who has been on a few of our calls and was able to share what Lent is like in the Catholic Faith.
Dr Johannah Myers has done a phenomenal job this year of creating an understanding of what the Lenten Season is about through the book series, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and attached here are the pdf files for each week if you would like to follow along. As always, this event was recorded for those of you that couldn't make it and posted on our YouTube Channel for your watching pleasure.
