In the News: Lenten Observance at Gaithersburg Congregation

"Lent is, for us, an opportunity to reflect on how we’re living our lives as Christians and to reflect more fully and maybe change some of the things that we’re doing, to live more fully the way we think we should live as Christians," said Pr. Buechler.
Ashes "represent repentance, a seriouness to live your life in a new way," said Pr. Buechler.

Practices as Christians observe Lent are described in a piece rebroadcast by PBS’ Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly on February 12, 2010. Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Gaithersburg, Maryland, was featured, and reflections on Shrove Tuesday, ashes, and other Lenten traditions were discussed.

“Lent is, for us, an opportunity to reflect on how we’re living our lives as Christians and to reflect more fully and maybe change some of the things that we’re doing, to live more fully the way we think we should live as Christians,” said the Rev. Steve Buechler or Prince of Peace in the interview. View the rebroadcast and find an article summary from the PBS Web site.
