The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday this week (February 14).  Lent marks a 40 day season of preparation that leads up to Easter.  Historically, this is a season that is focused on turning back to God and seeking spiritual renewal.  It is often a time where people prioritize the various practices of the spiritual life and set aside things that get in the way of following God.
