Lent is a hard season to understand. Many adults still aren’t sure what they are supposed to do.
The idea of Lent is taking the time to reflect on our choices and behaviours, see where we can improve, repent of our mistakes, and ask for guidance to do better.
It is also a time where we journey into darkness. So often the church wants to keep everything light and fun for teenagers, but that’s not authentic and it misses the point that in order to feel the joy we also have to feel the sorrow.
