We often times struggle with finding our purpose in life. We hear of others having a "calling", but may have difficulties understanding what our own calling might be. This Sunday we explore what it means to be called by God, and how to respond when God says "Get up and go!"
The season of Lent has begun, journey on! Lent is often described as a time of preparation and an opportunity to go deeper with God. This means that it’s a time for personal reflection that prepares people’s hearts and minds for Good Friday and Easter.
During Lent, Christians usually do three things to prepare: pray, fast, and give. In prayer, we focus on our need for forgiveness and the need to forgive others, in fasting we give something up as a way to express our total dependence on Christ, and in giving we express our gratitude for all that God has given us; “freely we have received, freely we give.”
