It’s hard to believe, but Lent is once again upon us. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and so it begins. Unfortunately, many people view the season in a negative light and try to grit their teeth and muscle through the next forty days. Here’s a little secret – that’s the way I viewed Lent for most of my life. Over the past few years, however, I began to see it differently. I now look at Lent as a tremendous opportunity for growing closer to Christ. With that in mind, I’d like to help you view Lent in the same way.
Starting on Ash Wednesday (February 18), I will once again be leading my annual Lenten Radio Retreat every Monday – Friday on The Gary Zimak Show. I would be honored to have you join me for 30 minutes each night as we journey together through the Lenten season. We’ll read and discuss the daily Mass readings and I’ll share some other tidbits that will help you to grow closer to Jesus. By popular demand, I’ll also lead you in my “super duper” examination of conscience. The theme for this year’s retreat is, “He must increase, I must decrease” (John 3:30) and that’s exactly what we’ll do. There is no cost, no book to purchase, no hidden costs or obligations – just an invitation from me to have a seat at my table as we discuss the “Good News” of Jesus Christ each night.
Interested? Here’s how it works:
Every Mon-Fri at 8 PM Eastern , the podcast will be available on the radio page of my website. You can listen to it directly from the Blogtalkradio player at the top of the page. You can also go to The Gary Zimak Show page on Blogtalkradio and download or listen to the show there. Finally, the podcast will appear in iTunes on the day after the show airs. You can download it free of charge.
Tonight at 8 PM Eastern on The Gary Zimak Show, I’ll talk more about the retreat and Lent. I’ll save a chair for you and I hope to see you then. As always, feel free to email me with any questions you may have. Get ready, my friends…
this is gonna be powerful!
