The Season of Lent begins each year on Ash Wednesday (March 5 for 2014) and takes us all the way up to the day of Easter (April 20 for 2014). This is a period of 40 days (not counting Sundays, which are considered a mini celebration of Easter each week) that reminds us of the 40 days that Jesus spent in the wilderness where he fasted and was tempted.

Each year at OSLC, we create an Advent devotional. This family-friendly resource is given out as the cover of our worship folder each week in Advent. The interior portion is designed for use with children and youth, and the back page has a devotional offering geared towards adults. In 2013, we focus on the first chapter of the Gospel of John discovering the ways that in Jesus God gives us the gifts of life, light, belonging and grace.
