February 14 – April 1, 2018

Lent is the season of the Christian Year that is typically observed as a time of simple living, prayer, and fasting leading up to Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday (February 14, 2018). Many spend the time in the same sort of self-examination that was modeled by Jesus in Matthew 4:1-11 where he prayed and fasted for 40 days before beginning his ministry. Each year during the season of Lent, some Christians choose to “give something up.” Others choose to take on something new, like a resolution to be more reflective or practice a new spiritual discipline.

However you choose to observe the season of Lent, we hope you will join our FUMC Fort Worth family in a photo-a-day challenge. We have provided a different word each day for you to contemplate — a word through which you can seek God. As you reflect on the word throughout the day, something you see will inspire you. Take a picture and share it on your social media page using the hashtag #FUMCFWLent.

You don’t have to be a great photographer. And you don’t have to write any sort of explanation. This project is about:

  • Paying attention
  • Being intentional
  • Connecting to our church family
  • Sharing our faith

If you don’t use Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, you can just collect them for your own use.

And be sure to follow FUMCFW on social media for daily reminders and reflections during this holy season.
