Book for Lent: Simplifying the Soul

Each year at OSLC during the Season of Lent (begins on March 5 in 2014), everyone is invited to read a book together and engage in spiritual practices that enrich our lives individually and as a community.

Lent 2014: Tending to the Core

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.

Who Do You Say that I Am?

For forty days leading up to Holy Week and Easter (not counting Sundays), the Church engages in the Season of Lent. “Lent” means springtime, and for all Christians, this is a time to prepare the spiritual soil of their lives and get ready for future growth. Even more specifically, it is a time to ask questions about what it means to be called a follower of Jesus Christ. Our theme at OSLC this Lenten Season is taken from Jesus’ words in Luke 20:9 when he asks his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?”
