“Traditionally Lent is a season of sober, realistic reflection on our own lives and our need for a Savior. It is a time for turning away from anything that has kept us from God and for turning or returning to him. It is a time to pray that God renew our love for him and our dependence on him” – Noel Piper
Lent is the season of preparation before Easter and it includes the 40 days prior to Easter (not including Sundays). Lent this begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 14th.
