Lent Forum Series: Unpacking Lent with Maggi Dawn


This season of Lent, the Forum will screen a series of video presentations developed by “ChurchNext.” This series is similar to the series used during Advent. Juli Kennedy will facilitate the Forum. Please join us 10:30 on Sundays (2/28, 3/7, and 3/21) to discover more about this season of Lent. Below is a description of the series.


Lent is a holy season of devotion that offers wonderful opportunities for life transformation. Theologian and author Maggi Dawn unpacks the wonder of this season.


Lent is the Christian tithe: 40 days which we give back to God by intentionally drawing near to the Lord. The season of Lent is an opportunity for life change, as we are invited to participate in special rituals and activities centered on Christ’s own preparation for death and resurrection.


Maggi Dawn knows much about this. She is the author of a book on Lent called Giving It Up, and has a special place in her heart for the ways in which Lent can transform lives and point them back toward God.


This course is an inspiring introduction to this holy season and is appropriate for those who are new or have spent years commemorating Lent.
