Reaching Up, Reaching In, Reaching Out (Links to the Entire Lenten Series)

Yesterday brought the last of the midweek Lenten series on Christian discipleship, Reaching Up, Reaching In, Reaching Out, that's been presented to the disciples of Living Water Lutheran Church in Centerville, Ohio, this year. Here are links to all five installments.

Reading God's Word
Letting Christ Shine

There's one more week to go in this Lenten season. Next week, Holy Week, will bring commemorations of Maundy Thursday, when Jesus instituted Holy Communion and commanded His followers to love each other as Christ loves us, and Good Friday, when Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for our sins.

Good Friday is "the first day" of the Triduum. The "third day" is Easter, when Christians celebrate the victory over death that Christ wins for all who repent and surrender to (believe in) Him through His resurrection from the dead.

Plan on experiencing Holy Week and Easter at a congregation near you.
