For many Christian denominations, Lent is a time of sacrifice and reflection. As I think about how I will observe it this year, I can think of no better way then caring for the gift that God has given all of us: Earth. As a culture, we have taken for granted many of life's conveniences. What were once luxuries are now considered necessities. These *necessities* are taking their toll. We would need five Earth's to keep up with our current standard of living! Lent is an opportunity to take some time every day to evaluate our priorities in this world and become closer to God and all that he as given to us. Please see the links below to some inspirational programs to help guide you through the season!
