Greetings all,

As I was preparing for teaching the youth group this week I realized that today is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of lent. I was wondering if you have ever considered observing lent as a way to deepen your understanding of the cross and resurrection of Christ. I realized that as I had asked you all to prepare your hearts for the Journey of Grace series that we will be starting this weekend. I asked you to think about fasting something or doing something different than you normally do in your private spiritual life. I guess what I am asking if you would take the challenge to take this further than before and continue your fasting through the series. Here is a cool video about lent and it really gets you thinking.

Just something for you to think about as you as God to prepare you for this awesome season.

In His Grip,
Pastor Jason
