Lent is a season of fasting, waiting, and reflecting. It prepares our hearts by casting out the excess and focusing solely on God. As we’re convinced of his goodness and greatness over the 40 days of Lent, we are able to celebrate Easter in a new way: fully, freely, and fervently.

9 Ideas to Celebrate Easter with Your Small Group

Fast Together. Fasting is all about saying no to something good to make room for the best thing: God. After reading 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker a few years ago, I’ve chosen to fast from various things in different seasons. The book opens up fasting to include a lot more than just food, which is healthy and appropriate. Last Lent, my small-group members each decided to fast from something and see what God would do. You could do a similar experiment with your group this Lent.
