Rev. Bobbie on Lent

Posted by The Rev. Bobbie Knowles + on

Lent is the 40 days of preparation before Easter, Sundays are not included inthis count. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday February 22, 2012.


During Lent many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting,repentance, meditation and silent retreats. It is a time of spiritual discipline.The idea is to set aside a time of prayer and for reflection on our Lordand Savior, Jesus Christ; his life, suffering, sacrifice, death, burial and resurrection.


We here at Hope Episcopal Church offer this book of meditation from our ownparishioners as a time of spiritual reflection. Thank you for a job well done.


I encourage each of you during Lent to use these Scriptures offered in thisbook as a guide to spiritual enrichment in your life and the lives of your families.When we follow Christ in his suffering, Easter Morning or Resurrection Day will be so much more meaningful.


My prayer is that you will have a blessed Lent and a Happy and Glorious Easter Day.


Love and blessings,


The Rev. Bobbie Knowles+
