Lent is a time where we are invited to journey with God as Jesus journeyed in the desert. Jesus fasted and prayed for 40 days and Christians are invited to a time of prayer and fasting in Lent.
The point isn’t just to give stuff up, the point is to grow spiritually, to connect more deeply with Jesus. This Lent at St John’s every Sunday we are looking at spiritual practices for life: “Hearing and Obeying God”, “Sabbath”, “Generosity”, “Hospitality”, “Vocation”, “Celebration and Partying.”
