Yesterday, our church commemorated Ash Wednesday. This service began our SpringLife emphasis this year. Over the past few years, we in the Wesleyan Church have known this as 40 Days of Prayer and Fasting, which in effect is what Lent is. Lent means “spring” in Latin. It begins on Ash Wednesday. Excluding Sundays, which are days of celebration and joy, there are forty days between Ash Wednesday and Holy Saturday. Many churches will find this to be a natural and convenient time to focus the hearts of their members on spiritual deepening and faith-sharing. That is our focus at Preston Wesleyan Church over the next forty days; to prepare our hearts for the coming celebration of Easter and the glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ.
