July 24 – Jon Ritner
Throughout Church History, Lent was the 40 day season that invited believers to prepare their hearts for the celebration of Easter. It is a time for reconnecting with God through repentance, reflection and the renewing of spiritual disciplines. It is a time of deepening our roots and asking God to renew the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Each Sunday in our series we will look at one of the classic spiritual disciplines as described throughout Scripture, show how Jesus incorporated the discipline and then give contemporary ideas for how we can practice it in the rhythms of our modern life.
