The Season of Lent
Lent is the forty-day preparatory period before Easter, beginning on Ash Wednesday. Lent begins this year on February 14 and culminates on Easter Sunday, April 1. In the Christian tradition, the season of Lent is a time of soul searching and repentance—a time for reflection while taking stock of one’s life in preparation for the Easter celebration of the risen Christ.
This booklet is a collection of Lenten Reflections from contributors throughout the Edgewood College community. Generally we have included only a portion of the biblical text due to space constraints. We hope these reflections, based on readings in the Common Christian Lectionary, serve as a guide and a point of inspiration for you during this year’s observance of Lent.
