What is Lent?
Lent is the period leading up to Easter, observed by many Christians around the world. It is often a time of reflection and preparation for Easter and is traditionally observed through fasting or giving something up. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 26, 2020) and continues until Easter Sunday (April 12, 2020).
Why is Lent Important to Habitat for Humanity?
Habitat for Humanity was founded, and continues to operate, as a Christian organization. We are committed to being a totally inclusive organization, while also remaining true to our vision, mission, and principles as the foundation for all that we say and do. Devotions, prayer, and other practices help our organization hear God’s voice and stay focused on what is most important in our housing ministry.
Join us this Lenten Season
Habitat for Humanity International has created a collection of devotionals, set up for weekly reflection, to help guide us through the season of Lent. Rather than focusing on giving something up, they have also created a list of 40 positive actions to consider adding to your life during the Lenten season. Both can be accessed on Habitat’s Lenten Devotions page.
We invite you to join us this season and see what the reflection of Lent can bring to your life!
