March 9th is Ash Wednesday. From that day until Easter we will be into the 40 days of Lent. Lent hints of spring, a time when the earth begins to awaken from a winter’s nap, and new growth bursts forth all about us. More personally, it is an opportunity to enter into springtime for our spirit. Christians have used the 40 days of Lent to seek spiritual growth, sincere repentance, changing of heart, casting off old sinful practices and seeking to commune with our Creator to help us go in the right direction. Lent is a time to let God do “spring cleaning” within us. We invite you to start your “spring cleaning” journey at Central Christian at the noon or 6:00 pm, Ash Wednesday Service. It’s your opportunity to allow God to help toss out the “stuff” that hindes you, and then freshen up the “new creature” you are meant to be as a follower of Christ.
