Less is More

Lent is a word derived from Latin and Old English roots connoting the idea of Springtime–Lengthening of days

Applied to the life of the church, Lent is a 40 day season (not including Sundays) that marks the time between Ash Wednesday and Easter, each year.

In the springtime we see more light dispelling the darkness of winter. We prepare for livelier days by spring cleaning and planting gardens. 

In a similar way, the Christian season of Lent invites us to prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate Easter well. It is a season of evaluating priorities, of giving up destructive habits we may have picked up during the winter of our lives, for the sake of forming constructive habits that lead us to fuller life.

This Lenten season we will be walking through a series on Simplicity, based on the devotional, “Less is More”, published by Renovaré. 

To go even deeper, consider joining one of our Lenten Small Groups where you can explore and practice simplicity in community.
