The early Christian Church created Lent as a time to embark on something new, a time to learn more about God.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent remembering the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert when he was tempted.
My husband at the Ash Wednesday Church service talked about the real meaning of Lent.
1st day of Lent bible reading: Mark chapter 1 – chapter 4
I enjoy listening to the bible and following along as it’s often easier to listen and understand better what the text is actually saying. I listen to a dramatized version however the website bible gateway also allows you to listen and read the bible, so if your interested have a listen.
Happy Wednesday friends!
