Lent Begins on Wednesday March 6th

Dear Christian educators,

Would you consider joining me for 40 Days of God’s Word during Lent with a verse a day that will encourage, equip and empower through God’s Word.

Lent is the season of 40 days (not counting Sundays) which begins on Ash Wednesday (3/6/19) and ends on Easter Eve (4/20/19). Lent comes from the Anglo-Saxon word lencten, which means spring. The season is a preparation for celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Sunday. Historically, lent began as a period of fasting and preparation for baptism by converts and then became a time of penance by all Christians. (from the United Methodist Book of Worship)

This year I will be hosting a proactive view of living an educators' life during Lent. Although, we may be "giving up” something we enjoy, let us use these 40 days to see the beauty of the Fruit of the Spirit in our school communities.

Would you like to join me in this 40 days of reflection into God’s Word for encouragement?  It will be a short and sweet daily message in this pattern:

  • A word based on the Fruit of the Spirit
  • A reflection of how the word can be profitable in the classroom
  • An educators’ prayer
  • An image with the verse for the day

I will host the verses on this blog, and on the CIPE (Christians in Public Education) website. There's nothing better than being in the Word with our brothers and sisters.

Prayerfully yours,

Karen C. Seddon
