Lent: a Time of Preparation

Lent: a Time of Preparation

Lent is a season that represents the 40 days Jesus wandered the desert praying and fasting after He was baptized. Christians today use this season as a time of prayer, penance, sacrifice, and good works in preparation for Easter.

While sacrifice and the act of giving up something during Lent is a common practice, inserting a new discipline into daily routine is also a great way to rejuvenate and prepare the heart for the celebration of the coming of Christ. One method for doing this is the use of a daily devotional.  

The Hekman Library offers a variety of books, devotionals, and other materials that can be utilized during the season of Lent. Here are a few titles:

Be sure to visit the 4th floor of the library to find additional materials.
