Lent starts this week with Ash Wednesday. When I grew up, I had no idea that something called Advent or Lent existed. My church was a small town, Southern Baptist congregation and as such, we shied away from anything that remotely resembled the “liturgical” church. The idea was that our faith is found in relationship, not ritual . . . and this is certainly true.
National WMU® invites you to join us as we observe the Week of Prayer for North American Missions.
On March 10, 2011, national WMU is hosting a meaningful time of prayer for the featured missionaries of the week of prayer at our building in Birmingham, Alabama.
