Just as we set aside time in the season of Advent to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ, we dedicate time in the season of Lent to contemplate our need of and give thanks for Christ’s life and death in preparation for the celebration of His resurrection. Observed in the six weeks leading up to Easter (40 days + Sundays), Lent is modelled on Jesus’ time of preparation and testing in the wilderness. This year, we indeed find ourselves in a time of testing and isolation, wrestling with what it means to be Christ’s body, the Church, in these unusual times. So this Lenten season, we hope to think through six aspects of that question using the PCI study series, For Now: Being the Church in Unusual Times. Each week, we will contemplate a different topic in the light of Scripture, allowing them to shape our time of corporate prayer on Sunday evenings.
