North Cincy Family & Friends,
Lent is a time in the yearly Christian calendar when we grieve over our sin, repent of clinging to lesser loves and recalibrate our hearts so that we might treasure Him above all things. Lent, a word taken from Latin meaning “fortieth,” is a period spanning forty days (not counting Sundays) beginning on Ash Wednesday and leading up to Easter Sunday. The goal of this time is that it would lead to an increased mourning over our sin that results in a deeper joy in the grace accomplished for us through the death and resurrection of our Savior. So, as we move into this season of preparing our hearts for Holy Week, these are a few resources that will help to cultivate a greater longing for the Resurrection.
