The 2020 Lenten season begins Wednesday, February 26 and marks a time on the church calendar when our thoughts turn toward our sinful nature and our fallen, broken world. As our Dean and Rector Andrew Pearson reminds us in our recent Adventurer newsletter, there is no “requirement” to observe Lent in the Bible, but the Book of Common Prayer invites us to observe this season so that as we reflect on our own brokenness, we also reflect on the grace of our Savior Jesus Christ who came into the world, died on the cross, and rose again after three days to save sinners like you and me.
When children are invited into the Lenten season at a young age, they grow up learning from their parents and siblings about sin and grace. It’s often difficult for families to find starting places for seasonal observances like Lent and we’re grateful for the opportunity to present a short family devotional guide, with Scripture passages selected to move families through the Bible, considering passages that reflect the season.
