Let's Study Lent Together!
Friend, if you are overwhelmed by the thought of practicing Lent for the first time or still are not sure about your Lenten practice, do not fret. We intend to help you grow during this season right alongside you!
What Will We Study?
Lent is the 40 days (minus Sundays!) before Easter. Lent commemorates the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert fasting before beginning His public ministry. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Saturday (the day before Easter). There are three components to Lent — almsgiving, fasting, and prayer.
Lent is meant to be a time of reflection and solitude—many churches do not allow weddings and other celebrations in their sanctuaries and campuses during Lent. We will walk together through our guided devotional, Empty // Lent - Eastertide Guided Devotional (included in course price).
In Empty, we guide you daily on how to make room in your heart + schedule for the coming of the Messiah, reflection and repentance of sins, and diving daily into the Word to grow closer to His Heart.
Included In Digital Package:
- One digital copy of Empty // Lent - Eastertide Guided Devotional (included in course price)
- Weekly Podcast Episodes
- Weekly Teachings by Bible teacher, Baylor Knott
- Community Chat, Reflection, Prompts for Going Deeper
- Ideas and Recipes for Family Activities
Lent is a beautiful time to discuss the different facets of emptiness — how we can empty ourselves, what we do when we feel empty, and the most exciting use of the word of all — the empty tomb.
We hope you can join us for our Lent Study Course!
We know that rest restores the soul because rest is a practice God put in place for His people at the beginning of creation to give us peace, or Shalom. Our hope is that you will find restorative rest during your day of Reset. You are allowed to rest. You don't need to feel guilty and it's okay if you feel anxious at first about taking time for yourself. But our hope is that as you eat wonderful food and linger over the unhurried, intentional conversation that you will begin to let go of any stronghold that the enemy has wrapped around you. You have permission to freely worship your Father with adoration and joy. And laugh with women who will most certainly become your friend. You not only have permission to rest, but you also have permission to fully become the person God has created you to be. You just have to carve out time to be still.
Yes, I need this! What do I do?
