Welcome to Lent 2010

I am reposting this from last year with a few changes.
Today is Ash Wednesday, the start of the Lenten season (more info here)--the 40 days set aside by some churches to reflect on the Holy Week to come.
I invite you to join other Christ followers and use this special time of reflection, just a little over one month, to think about what Christ did for man by coming to this world as a helpless babe, walking and working among mankind for some 33 years, then dying in our place on the Cross at Calvary and rising to life again. It's good to reflect on how you can share His love with others everyday too.
Here are some online Lenten deotionals and resource I found.

*Goshen College-Mennonite (available as a RSS feed or daily e-mail)
*Creighton College-Roman Catholic (audio, written and other Lenten resources including cooking for Lent)
* Evangelical Covenant Church-weekly writings througout the Lenten season

If you have a favorite Lenten resource and/or online devotional feel free to leave the url in the comments section and why you like it:) Lent, like Advent, was new to me until several years ago.
And now a verse--
" For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. " John 3:16 KJV

Lenten Blessings, Aimee.
