The Ancient Tradition of Lent
The forty days leading up to Easter, not counting Sundays
In the first few centuries of church life, people who became
curious about Jesus were often expected to spend significant time as
CHOIR
“hearers” before they were baptized. They would join the life of the
 Joy
church, joining in service to others, sharing meals in homes, learning
about Jesus and a life with him. When the person decided, “Yes, I want
to follow Jesus!” – usually some months or years after first considering
Jesus – then they were accepted into baptism (which is a sharing in
Jesus’ death and resurrection), and then accepted to the Lord’s Supper
(Jesus’ feeding us with his own life).
But by the mid-200s AD and even more in the 300s AD, as the number of
new Christians swelled dramatically, many parts of the Church took this
longer period of spiritual preparation for baptism, and shortened it to just
40 days. The Church also began placing this preparation period directly
before Easter, so that “hearers” could be baptized on Saturday night
before Easter (the “Easter Vigil”), share communion with other
Christians on Easter Sunday, and then receive some additional
mentoring after Easter. Some churches still regularly use Lent to prepare
new believers for baptism (and new members for membership).
But even for those who are already Christians, we observe Lent as a
season to remember all Jesus has done for us in life, death, and
resurrection – and all he is for us as he serves and prays for us today and
forever. We renew our response to his grace, in part, through renewed
attention to time-honored spiritual disciplines such as prayer, scripture
meditation, confession, generosity, and fasting.

11:30am, Choir Room
There is a very similar image in Psalm 1:
that God’s word is the source of our life.
As we steadily absorb his instruction and
come to know him, we become “like a
tree planted beside a channel of water,
bearing fruit in season and whose leaves
never wither.”
During Lent, we will enact this invitation
out of barrenness into life in a very tangible way.
Each week during lent, you will be invited to place roots and leaves on a barren tree in our sanctuary.
a Root: a step you are taking to connect more deeply with Jesus and
his word, some new step into the bible, into prayer, into confession, into
(secret!) generosity, or some other spiritual discipline. This could be
something you commit to do, or something you have recently begun.
a Leaf: a step of obedience to Jesus’ word that you have taken (or will
take). A step to forgive, reach out, or make amends. A promise made (or
kept), a lust cut off, an ungodly anger surrendered to God. A step to live
out any of the 8 Beatitudes, or live as salt and light (Matt 5:3-16).
