Lent Journey

     As I mentioned yesterday, we sing a hymn during our worship time everyday. We then go over vocabulary that may not be familiar, especially to the younger kids. For today’s Lenten Journey I thought I would define some of the more “theological” terms and phrases from the hymn Come to Calvary’s Holy Mountain that other’s may not be familiar with.

  • contrition – sincere repentance or remorse
  • remission pardon; forgiveness, as of sins or offenses.
  • “defiled without, within” dirty or unclean in every part
  •  “live forever” – Eternal life in Heaven

     Visit Trish at A House Upon the Rock to read what other bloggers are pondering on during this Lenten Season.

My guys have learned some of their most impressive vocabulary words through religious education, church, and hymns.

A great way to break down the hymns.....explaining unknown words.

Our daughter asks what words mean, I never thought until now that I could be proactive and not wait for her to ask.
