Looking forward to this year’s Lent Course

Lent and Spring are synonymous in old English: lencten. It is, traditionally, the “long fast” in the Christian calendar, when we set aside worldly matters to meditate on the life spiritual, to prepare for baptism, to confess our sins and our faith in preparation for Easter. Many eschew meat and fish – or more contemporary treats like chocolate – after Shrove Tuesday (carneval). Perhaps we can use this distance from luxury to focus our minds on the Word of God?

Lavenham and Preston St Mary will be running a Lent Course again this year, to stimulate our thinking about the Christian life and the meaning of the Resurrection. The theme of this year’s course will be “Signs of the Kingdom” and will begin on the 27th of February in Lavenham Village Hall. The first session, “The man born blind – Light” will be at 9.45am with sessions 2-5 on the Mondays following, also starting at 9.45. Details on the lent course poster
