One could say the season of Lent has settled upon us and grows into us, or you could say the season of Lent can begin within us and grow out of us. From which lens will you view Lent? It’s an important decision because how you treat Lent is how your child/children will learn to travel their Lenten journey.
SMSA is traveling the road of Lent by letting it grow within us and spreading our journey to others. Hoping it may foster prayer, almsgiving, and fasting as we journey towards Easter. Together, we will have strength as one. We would like you to caravan with us these next 40 days. What can we teach our youth about fasting from not only food, but other vices we may encounter in our everyday life. How can you give alms without giving any money at all? Can we give to others with our thoughts, hearts and hands? How can we pray and strengthen our relationship with our Lord and God? Can we not only pray “asking prayers”, but thanksgiving, praising and confessing prayers as well?
Looking at Lent through this lens and taking this road will lead us to Easter joy. What a wonderful outcome!
Hope to see you one the road,
