Lent is a time of prayer and renewal and an opportunity to refocus relationships with God.

This year, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10, and continues through Holy Saturday, March 26. An Easter reflection is also provided. CHA is offering its annual series of Lenten podcast reflections to enable you to reflect on the meaning of this season by downloading and listening to these weekly offerings.

The author of the 2016 series is Dennis Winschel, MA, who has always had a personal interest in the dynamics of spiritual growth and development. With a background in theology, spirituality and counseling, he has worked in for-profit and nonprofit sectors as a pastor, teacher, coach, counselor, trainer, manager, performance and organizational development consultant. He has worked locally and internationally in Australia, Africa, England and Hong Kong.
