During Lent, Christians throughout the world seek to follow Christ into the wilderness. For 40 days, we seek solitude and and return to the disciplines of our faith that challenge us, nourish us, and give us joy.
There is nothing magical about Lenten disciplines. Lenten disciplines are simply things we do that turn our minds and hearts back to God and help us get back into a right relationship with God. They are self-examination, repentance, prayer, fasting, self-denial, and reading and meditating on scripture.
While carnival season is New Orleans is lost of fun, the Lenten season is absolutely wonderful. For in the wilderness, we find our hearts, and it is there that God will again give us the peace and joy for which we all long.
Looking for some quiet in the midst of the busyness of life? Come join us at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit this Lent!
