Not much time for in-depth blogging these days, but I did have a few appropriate links for the start of the Lenten season. We went to the Ash Wednesday service at our new church last night, and it was very encouraging. Our pastor emphasized the fact that Lent is a season of remembrance, not just of Christ's death and resurrection, but also of his life and ministry. The service was short but edifying, with a few hymns, corporate Scripture readings of confession and repentance (including Psalm 51), a brief sermon, and the celebration of the Lord's Supper.
Anyway, here are those links:
Alastair is featuring posts by different guest bloggers throughout Lent, all reflections on various facets of Jesus' public ministry.
Doug Wilson encourages us to break the habit of seeing the Lord's Supper as a time for introspection.
And finally, here are some rambling Lenten reflections I cobbled together at this time last year.
