Lent: Empty and Filled

7 Weeks

This seven-week series explores the historic Christian season of Lent—from Ash Wednesday through Palm Sunday. This rich Christian tradition points us back to the reality of our sin and our desperate need for a Savior. Christians have participated in this season not as a means of meaningless self-denial or pious ritual keeping, but as a means of emptying ourselves of distracting comforts so that we can be filled with renewed faith and hope. During this season, we focus on the multifaceted aspects of repentance: recognition of our sin, hope in a Savior, and obedience as a response to his grace. Rather than engage in empty ceremony or purely internal spiritual growth, we learn that observance of this season produces in us a richer faith for the sake of the world.
