Second Sunday in Lent: What is Lent?

Many Christians have heard of Lent, but do all know what it means?  According to Merriam-Webster, Lent means "the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday to Easter as a period of penitence and fasting."

Lent begins each year on Ash Wednesday, 46 days before Easter Sunday.

Lent is meant to be a time of repentance.  That’s not a feeling of shame but an awareness that sin separates us from God and of what it cost Him to be reunited with us.

LCAQD Lutheran Services Lenten appeal 2024:

Our focus text for the 2024 appeal is:

‘I have heard their cry … indeed, I know their sufferings.'  (Exodus 3:7)

This text reminds us of God's love and care for his people.  Lutheran Services is one way that we as LCAQD put our faith in God's loving care into action.  Our appeal this year will support the ongoing work of Hospital Chaplaincy and Mary and Martha’s domestic violence refuge.  Envelopes available from the table in the narthex.

Prayer Points for the Week:

·        For those in authority, such as King Charles and his representatives; Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and members of parliament; Premier Steven Miles and state parliamentarians; Mayor Paul McVeigh and local councillors;

·        For the Church, LCAQD; that the church may show Christ to all who have no faith

·        For the pastors Bishop Paul Smith, District Bishop Mark Vainikka; Pastor Joel Pukallus and all pastors;

·        For the nations of the world, that they may receive the blessing of peace

·        For all travellers, exiles and refugees, that God would guide them to a home to call their own

·        For all who inquire into the Christian faith

·        For those who preach and teach the gospel

·        For the Jewish people, that they may look to Christ as their messiah
