Lent 2015 - Daily Practices & Weekly Rhythms

Village participates in Lent through giving up and taking up: giving up what can distract us to create space for us to hear and respond to God; taking up practices that ground us, realign us, and increase our attention to God’s voice. Our prayer is that together as a community, during the season of Lent, we will confess our brokenness, respond in repentance, and — as the days grow brighter — experience the abundance and reality of restoration through God’s lavish grace. This calendar provides weekly rhythms and daily practices for each day during Lent. Invite others to join you in these practices and reflect on your experiences together.
