Lent is a reverent religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar that beings on Ash Wednesday and ends about six weeks later before Easter Sunday. The purpose of Lent is to prepare believers through prayer, fasting, and penance for the coming Celebration of Easter. An interesting fact about Ash Wednesday is that they get all the ashes from the dried palm branches gathered at the previous year's Palm Sunday.
Take a few minutes today to reflect upon your own life and ponder how you can grow in your spiritual walk today. Our chaplain David Cobb is always willing to help you along your spiritual journey no matter what your faith background is. We are blessed to have him on our campus and hope you can join us soon.
