Lent PowerPoint Presentation: Lent Slide Show


Topic Description: A deeper look at Lent
We all come from different denominations/religious backgrounds and whether you participate in Lent or not, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the customs and how they effect spiritual change and growth. I grew up in a Baptist church so my family did not practice Lent, but when I became a Methodist Youth Minister I had to teach on the subject. I was fortunate to have the opportunity and needing to study it to teach gave me a new perspective. If you do not do Lent, come and find out more … and if you do take part in this ritual then please come with a story of how it has impacted your life. I think this will be a great time of sharing, insight, and bonding for our group.
