Suzhou Church Starts Lenten Meditations
Ash Wednesday Marks Beginning of Lent FestivalAsh Wednesday Marks Beginning of Lent Festival

On February 20, the Gongxiang Christian Church in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province launched Lenten spiritual meditations. 

On its WeChat official account, 4-5 minutes of daily spiritual meditation is released for readers to think, reflect, pray through a scripture passage, and finally put the reflection into their actions. 

At present, three issues entitled "Enoch Walks with God," "Noah Builds the Ark," and "Jesus is the Word in the Beginning" are produced to guide the believers to have more time with God during this period and to commemorate the crucifix resurrection of the Lord Jesus by repentance and to fast with their purity.

Since this year's Ash Wednesday, namely February 17, 2021, the church starts the traditional feast of Lent, also known as the Pre-Suffering Period. The Lent, which lasts forty days, commemorates that, after his forty days and forty nights of fasting in the desert, Jesus believes wholeheartedly in God's aid to conquer the temptation of the enemy.
