All Years

We will soon be entering  into a 40-day period of preparation for the Easter celebration, the  sacred season of Lent. Lent is an intentional journey that we take as a  church community – a journey of reflection, prayer, repentance and acts  of mercy. It is a season where we agree to befriend the fact that all is  not well with our soul. This is why we devote attention to the  discipline of self-examination during Lent.

The Episcopal/Anglican  tradition offers rich resources to do all this in our worship during  Lent. These varied practices are an opportunity to adopt a new rhythm of  life, preparing our hearts for the great drama and joy of Holy Week and  Easter. A shift in liturgical tone contributes to the spiritual  formation of your congregation in a unique way.

The contemporary nature of this liturgy is refected in the words and also in the  Order of Service. Notice that the lessons begin with a heading that  says, merely “Scripture,” which allows for liturgy planners to assign  the number of readings from the lectionary as is appropriate.
