During the season of Lent. Christians around the world focus inward, looking at our own sin and brokenness, and how these things led Jesus to the cross. We remember His 40 Days of self-denial in the desert, and intentional deny ourselves certain things, as we feel led. We also practice alms-giving as a way of serving the needy in our community. Among other things, this 40 day period helps us appreciate Easter even more when it finally arrives.
