Easter 2021

In Lent, Christians take a sober look at their own role in bringing about Jesus' death. We examine our own sin, and face up to how weak we truly are. We turn to God, who is the only One with the power to forgive us and change us.
In the second century, the church used Lent as a time for training new believers as Christians. The whole church community took part, and fasted together. Come Easter, the new believers would be baptized into the Church.
As more people were baptized as children, Lent became a time for looking at the depth of one's own sin, and turning away from them.
