BATH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH


The Season of Lent

The season of Lent is a 40-day journey (not counting Sundays) in the church calendar where we devote ourselves to practices that will awaken us to the reality of Christ’s presence within us as individuals and as community. The goal of Lent is not to dwell on our sinfulness, but to become of aware of things in our lives that keep us from seeing that Christ is alive. During Lent we are invited to take on the spiritual practices of prayer, meditation, fasting, works of love and reading scripture so that we can awaken to God’s presence, begin to enjoy God forever and more deeply experience our Easter joy.

We begin celebrating this 40-day season of fasting and prayer on  February 17, 2021 (Ash Wednesday), observe Maundy Thursday on April 1, 2021, and Good Friday on April 2, 2021 and conclude triumphantly on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021. Easter is the annual celebration of Christ’s resurrection, the high point of the Christian year.

The color used in the sanctuary for most of Lent is purple, red violet, or dark violet. These colors symbolize both the pain and suffering leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus as well as the suffering of humanity and the world under sin.  But purple is also the color of royalty, and so anticipates through the suffering and death of Jesus the coming resurrection and hope of newness that will be celebrated in the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
