Welcome to Lent
Welcome to that favorite time of year: Lent! Okay, perhaps not your favorite time of year. But, here at Greenpoint, we invite you to take a new look at it this year. During these last cold blasts that winter has to give, take a moment for reflection. This is a time for experimenting: while Lent is traditionally associated with fasting and solemn repentance, it’s done in the name of striving to connect with God. Let this be a time to wipe away those things that keep us from opening our hearts to God and to one another. Sometimes that might mean making a new commitment of some kind (yes, even fasting counts), that reminds you to look to God for love and support. Oh, and look to the church, too! Please join us now, or anytime, for support, community or a plain-ol’ good Lenten time.
