Lent Quiz

True or False

  • I have never celebrated Lent.
  • Lent is 46 days before Easter.
  • Fasting from food and activities occurs during Lent.
  •  Fasting is not allowed on Sundays and so are not counted as one of the days of Lent. This is why Lent is said to be 40 days long.
  • Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent.
  • The black ashes put on your forehead (on Ash Wednesday) signify repentance before God.
  • Offering can also be a part of Lent.

All the above are True.

During this season I want to . . .

  • Investigate fasting, its meaning, and application to my life.
  • Have God reveal how I may obey and honor Him more.

I am new to this traditional worship. Please pass on your ideas and suggestions.

    How can I e-mail you? I have a Bible Study that I wrote when wanting to learn more about fasting. It was a help to me and I’d be willing to pass it along if you’re interested…

    I’ve heard Bill Bright speak about fasting several times on the radio, maybe Campus Crusade has something on it? I have been interested too, thinking of Jesus telling the disciples “this type comes out with prayer and fasting”.

    Monica, Yes, it is beautiful! I loved taking walks on the grounds. Once I attended a work retreat there.

    I heard Micahle Card speak and went to one of their Christmas madrigals which my dd was in.

    I have many fond memeories of that place.

    How does giving up a food or an activity deepen our relationship with Christ? I understand Advent a bit more, but Lent is something I know nothing about. You have me curious.

    Lynette,

    I believe the idea behind the fast is to replace the “given up” item with time with Christ.

    Lent is a time to prepare our hearts through reflection, fasting, repentence, etc for Easter.

    At least that is what I understand. I’ll let you know as I learn more.

    Lynette,

    This is what I’m hearing about fasting and lent. It is a tool that helps you think more about Jesus. This season is all about Jesus.
