THE LITURGICAL YE AR The liturgical year was developed during the first centuries of the early church as a tool to help the people of God remember and celebrate the full mystery of the Gospel. Each season of the liturgical year calls us to focus on different aspects of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, as well as his ascension, the day of Pentecost and his promised return. To that end, each season has its own colors, prayers, rituals and moods to aid in our remembrance and celebration. The color for Lent is purple, which symbolizes somberness, solemnity, penitence, and prayer. It is also a royal color that reminds us of the contempt and scorn that Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, endured in his death. Some traditions use black on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, which reminds us of our sin and the cost of redemption. The color for Easter and Eastertide (the 50 days before Pentecost) is white, which symbolizes purity and wholeness, and his triumph over death and the new life he brings. By marking the passage of time redemptively, the liturgical calendar reminds us that God has acted and continues to act in history, redeeming us for himself. Taken together, we see that the liturgical year acts in concert with Scripture and our weekly and daily worship, amplifying the invitation to lose ourselves in the good news of Jesus so that we might truly find ourselves and live.

L E N T: R E P E N TA N C E , R E F L E C T I O N A N D FA S T IN G The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and is observed for 40 days (the 6 Sundays that fall during the season are usually not considered part of the season) and can be simply defined this way: Lent is a time during which we prepare for the celebration of Easter through repentance, reflection and other acts of spiritual renewal. Different Christian traditions have different approaches to how Lent should be observed. For many, Lent means refraining from certain things, or fasting. Some traditions prescribe periodic days of complete fasting or set a schedule of when to fast from what. For others, the fast is simpler and involves the giving up of an indulgent food, beverage or activity. Some traditions advocate abstention of anything that constitutes celebration, such as parties, weddings or dances. Fasting has always been an important spiritual discipline in the Christian tradition, but is sometimes misunderstood. Here are some helpful ways to think about fasting: As we abstain from food and other excesses, we deprive ourselves of the things that make us feel self-sufficient and protected. Like Jesus did in the wilderness, fasting causes us to experience vulnerability and temptation. It’s in this place 2


where we confront the temptation to live apart from God as our own gods. It’s in this place where we confront all the things we “consume” (busyness, entertainment, apathy, religiosity, etc.) in order to avoid the chaos within us (fear, cynicism, jealousies, addictions, secrets, etc.). It’s in this place that we see how the brokenness within feeds the brokenness without. It’s in this place that we confront death. It’s in this place we seek forgiveness and hear the invitation to live into the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ anew. Ultimately, Lent and the practice of fasting point us to and prepare us for the feast of Easter. It draws our attention to the fact that our only comfort in life and in death is that we are not our own, but belong—body and soul, in life and in death—to our faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. Why? In Jesus new life is possible because he has defeated death. Through Jesus we are restored to God and to one another and to ourselves. In Jesus, our hunger for wholeness is truly satisfied. Ronald Rolheiser summarizes all of this well. He writes: “Celebration survives on contradiction. To feast, we must first fast. To come to real consummation, we must first live in longing. To taste specialness, we must first have a sense of what is ordinary.” We recommend fasting by giving up a food, beverage, or activity that you often turn to for comfort. Perhaps this is chocolate, chips, beer or wine. Perhaps it is watching TV or spending time on social networks. As you consider what to abstain from, you may feel the need to abstain from more than one thing. Some traditions keep the fast all through Lent. Others allow breaks on Sundays. This is up to you. If you would like to practice a full day of complete fasting (no food, but water/juice allowed), we recommend doing so on Good Friday. This is the traditional day for fasting for many Christians around the world. Remember, the Lenten fast is not a diet or a self-improvement regiment. It’s an opportunity to enter into the wilderness and to find satisfaction in Jesus.

THE GU IDE Remember, Lent is more than negation or not doing something! So we offer this prayer guide to help you enter into Lent more fully. Use the guide for personal, family or community devotions. Or when you’re fasting and need encouragement. The guide offers weekly prayers and daily readings primarily from the Gospel of Luke.* The guide begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on the Saturday after Easter. Almost every reading has a suggested focus in case you’re pressed for time or need shorter readings for family/group devotions. We believe this guide will help you as individuals, roommates, groups and familes to into the story of the Gospel in new and deeper ways. * The schedule of readings is adapted from “Lent for Everyone” by NT Wright


LENTEN CANDLES Many of us are familiar with the Advent Wreath and the lighting of its candles to help us prepare for Christmas. Less known is the use of Lenten candles. While the use of Lenten candles is not universal, it is part of the Lenten observance for Christians in different traditions. There are different variations, but the basic framework is the same. If you would like to incorporate the use of Lenten candles along with the devotions in this guide, we recommend the following practice: Begin with 6 purple candles and one white candle. The purple candles mark each Sunday in Lent. The white candle is for Holy Week and Easter. You can: line them up in a row with the white candle in the middle; position them in a circle with the white candle in the middle; or arrange them in a cross. Starting Ash Wednesday, light all 7 candles at the beginning of your devotion. On each Sunday in Lent, light one less purple candle at the beginning of your devotion. Continue the pattern until Palm Sunday and light only the white candle. On Good Friday, when we remember Christ’s death, extinguish the final candle at the end of your devotion. On Easter, relight all 7 candles at the beginning of your devotion and remember joyfully Christ’s resurrection and the new life he gives to the world!

*** The guide and the candles, as well as fasting, are not meant to burden you. Our goal is not to give you more tasks to check off, but to provide you with tools to let you experience God's grace more fully. Practice what you can. Use the guide in whole or in part. In other words, live into Lent as you are able. As you do so, may you know the joy of our salvation more and more. It is a great joy for us to be your pastors. We are so thankful that God has brought us together and we are honored to be able to worship and serve our Lord together with you. May Christ grant us all a blessed Lent and Easter! With great love for you all, The Pastoral Staff of Resurrection Brooklyn

Amen. —A Presbyterian Prayer for Lent PRAYER OF CONFESSION Good God, we confess how we have rebelled against you. We are controlled by doubt and fear, and in our doubt we have gone our own way.

O Lo, My Lord

œ

Yet Look Be Oh


THE LORD’S PRAYER Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen. THE APOSTLES' CREED I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
