What is Lent?

Lent is a time of repentance and self-examination of the heart, a time to meditate on the suffering and death that Christ endured in our place. Lent is a solemn season in anticipation of the Easter celebration of Jesus’ resurrection and the new life we have in Him! Here's a brief video from Concordia Publishing House on what the season is all about.
