Lent - A season for turning

For everything there is a season • Turn, turn, turn
a time to plant, and a time to harvest • Turn, turn, turn
a time to break down, and a time to build up • Turn, turn, turn
a time to keep, and a time to put aside.

Lent is a season of turning –
Turning from what is hurtful & towards what is healing
Turning from what is shattered & towards what is whole
Re-turning to the Lord

We turn towards the Lord to know God's grace.
