lent madness

What is it?  Lent Madness began in 2010 as the brainchild of the Rev. Tim Schenck (Rector at St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, MA). In seeking a fun, engaging way for people to learn about the men and women comprising the Church’s Calendar of Saints, Tim came up with this unique Lenten devotion.

PRE-ADVENT ***Take Some Time to Pause***

Pre-Advent Candles

"Slow down you move too fast" might be lyrics to a song that some of you will know.  Familiar or not with the song, you are sure to connect with the need to take some time to reflect.  I might rewrite the next line of the song as "you got to make Advent last."  Advent, you ask?  Yes, you know the four Sundays before Christmas.  It's the Church's intentional time to prepare for the coming of the Christ-child.  Yes, you are correct, it is not four weeks before Christmas yet (yes, you are right Momma Jane).
