Joyful Event

I'm not sure what you think of when you hear the word "Lent," but if I had to guess, the word "joy" probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind.

But as the season of Lent approaches (more rapidly than I was ready for this year! - Ash Wednesday is February 14th) I'm exactly reflecting on joy.

Lent is the 40 days (not counting Sundays) leading up to the celebration of Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday. It's a season that has generally been associated with repentance, fasting, and"giving something up." It's often seen as a more somber time in the church year, with some churches having a tradition of not singing any "Hallelujah"s within the period of Lent. The season begins on Ash Wednesday with a reminder of our human limitations and mortality; it ends with the betrayal and death of Jesus and the scattering of the disciples. For the musically-inclined, Lent is a minor key season of the church year.

But the word "Lent" itself is derived from a word that simply means"spring"—that time of year when seeds long-buried begin, ever so tentatively at first, to grow and bloom.

So as we journey together through Lent this year, I invite us to reflect on the way this season plants and nurtures the seeds of joy that we will celebrate on Easter Sunday. Along the way, we're going to explore what joy means, askingquestions like: Is joy the same as happiness? Can we really always be joyful? Is joy a feeling, or something different than a feeling?

What does joy mean to you—and what might it look like to spend 40 days cultivating seeds of joy in the soil of your life?.

Grace + Peace,

David
