In the liturgical calendar, the season of Lent is a forty day journey to the cross—a time set aside for confession and reflection, as we consider the price Jesus paid to bring a message of hope and reconciliation to our world. It is a time when we are invited into opportunities, both individually and as a community, to consider how we might reflect, repent, repair the places, the practices, and the relationships in our lives that need to change.
Riverside clergy, staff, and members have assembled some thoughts and reflections to walk alongside us through Lent.
