About the Series

The overall purpose of this Lent series is to introduce the congregation to the blessings that God gives through Confession and Absolution. The series is catechetical in nature, and will incorporate especially the use of the seven Penitential Psalms, as well as other Psalms and readings appropriate to the season and the service.

What we will be doing is looking at the role of Individual Confession and Absolution in the life of the Christian congregation, the role of the penitential Psalms in the prayer life of the Christ, and how these two elements tie together during the season of Lent.
