This is a very interesting time of year! As we look down the days until Easter, we often hear of those partaking in something that often goes unexplained, Lent. We at CrossCurrent are interested in leading a charge this year by asking if you would prayerfully consider joining us in private observance. For the record, Lent is NOT something that is mentioned in Scripture. It is not something that we want to pressure you into doing. However! Lent does encourage and celebrate some beautiful principals: Prayer, Fasting, Surrendering to God, Giving, and more. We know that this is last minute because Lent technically starts tomorrow March 1, and continues for 40 days until Easter, but do not let this discourage you. There is nothing "magical" about the number of days you partake. If you need a few days to prayerfully consider what you might want to fast from, please take this time. It means more to us that you would want to seriously take on this beautiful act. For more detail, there is a helpful article linked to the bottom of this document!
