Lent is a season of the liturgical calendar when we prepare ourselves for Holy Week and celebrating the resurrection at Easter. One of the spiritual practices of Lent is fasting to then take that time to care for our spiritual lives. Throughout Lent, as a group, the Youth will not be fasting but taking on a practice of care. The Youth will be investigating care of creation. Starting in Genesis, and studying other areas of the Bible, we will mine for ways we are called to care for creation. Then the Youth will begin to practice care by sponsoring better creation care practices within our church. After Lent, the Youth hope you will join us as we share what we have learned with and the practices we have begun.
