The season of Lent has traditionally been a season of fasting. We prepare for Easter by confession and repentance, and by taking on fasts and practices that make us ready for the great feast of the resurrection. The exception to this are the six Sundays during Lent. On Sundays, we set aside our fasts, and celebrate ahead of time the good news we know is coming. This is why Lent is the 40 days plus Sundays before Easter.

During Lent 2021, we are taking full advantage of this. We know there is much to grieve and lament in the world right now. But on Sundays we will feast on Scripture texts that talk about rejoicing, about celebrating, even about partying. Come and rejoice with us!
