Rev. Guthrie visits to talk about Lent


On Wednesday 14 February the Rev. Guthrie visited us to talk about Lent.  
This is an important time of the year for Christians. 

He reminded us that many people had pancakes on Tuesday - 

Shrove Tuesday, the day before the start of Lent.

Then he said that Lent is 40 days long

with Good Friday and Easter at the end.

Finally, after reading to us from the Bible, he taught us a song which we joined in.

To help us remember the 'message' of Lent he had a meaning for 
each of the four letters - can you guess what they were?

L is for renewing our LOVE FOR GOD
E is for preparing for EASTER
N is for saying NO to something, to think more about God
T is TAKING UP more prayer, Bible reading, acts of kindness and giving to
people in need
