The season of Lent is the fourth season of the church year. Lent starts on Ash Wednesday and prepares us for Easter, offering us lots of time – upwards of two months – for self-examination.

Some people take on additional study during Lent, while others deny themselves something as an ongoing reminder of the season. That practice can be helpful, but Lent is not a time for punishment, just reflection. Many people turn inward during Lent, writing Lenten reflections that help them bridge their spiritual quest to loved ones, to their community, to their faith in God.

The color purple, or lavender, is the palette of the season, sometimes supplanted by plain, unbleached cloth.

After the crucifixion of Christ we celebrate his resurrection in the Season of Easter.
