Two Minute Tuesday

Can you believe that Ash Wednesday is tomorrow, beginning the season of Lent? Wasn’t it just Christmas? I have been thinking about Lent recently, not only because I’m the church secretary trying to get the bulletins prepared, but because during one of our Advent services our Pastor had us look at the banners behind the altar. One has the root of Jesse on it and the other one has the Advent wreath with the base as the crown of thorns. As a child I didn’t really realize that Christmas and Easter were linked but as I started reading and studying the Word it became clear. During the season of Lent, we reflect Jesus’ journey to the cross and fix our eyes on Him. One of the ways we can do this is by using Lutheran Women in Mission devotions and Bible studies found on the LWML website, under The Word tab. I am looking forward to using them in my own group and with my zone.
