How are your Lenten practices going? Have you been intentional during this first week of Lent to find quiet time to spend with God?

From our Lenten devotional guide for the First Sunday of Lent, there is a reflection on Jesus’ baptism as told in Mark 1. We are reminded that his baptism was preceded by John the Baptist’s preaching on repentance and forgiveness of sin. Hear these words from our guide:
In Mark’s original Greek, the word for repentance is metanoia, from meta (change) and noia (mind); today we might say “change of heart,” or “change of life.”

What change is God calling you toward this week? How are you changing your life?
