A big hello to all the kids at Trinity Church. I’m Henny and I’m the church mascot. I’m so happy to have such great friends at Trinity.
Does is feel like we just celebrated Christmas? It was so much fun opening presents and hanging out with my family. I got a cool Frisbee for Christmas that I still play with almost every day. I can even catch it while it’s still in the air. But Christmas is over and do you know what season we are in now? If you guessed Lent, you’re right!
Lent is an important season. This is the time (forty days, not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. Each day of Lent we are invited to take time to think about Jesus: what he did, how he lived his life and how much he loves us. Sometimes people go through Lent giving up something that they really like; this might be TV, or dessert, or time spent on the computer. All this is great, but there’s another way we can remember Jesus. Instead of giving up something, maybe you would like to honor Jesus by doing something. You could help out at home, eat lunch with a kid at your school who usually eats alone, or write a thank you note to someone who has been super nice to you (maybe one of your teachers).
The purpose of Lent is to have us remember all that Jesus has done for us and to prepare us for the celebration that is Easter.
Do you have a question for me? I’d love to answer it. Just send it to me at bit.ly/AskHenny.
Don’t forget my motto: Paws for Jesus!
