Lenten Reflections

We asked some Methodists for their thoughts and responses about the season of Lent. What are yours?

  What is the one thing I will remember Jesus for during this Season of Lent?


What is the one thing that I will seek to repent from?


What is my one response to Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross?


Name, Age Church
1 I repent of letting the lifestyle of the church become more important than the life of a Christian Community. The only reasonable response is repentance and renewal; I must give all to Him since He gave all for me. Dr Anthony Goh Bedok Methodist Church


I seek repentance for doubting His promise, worrying unnecessarily to my own destruction.



I seek to fully live out Colossians 3:1-3: To set my mind on things above and not on things on earth, for life is hidden with Christ in God.


Rachel Seah Kampong Kapor Methodist Church
3 That I don’t always have my eyes on God. Lena Soh-Ng Covenant Community Methodist Church
4 The prayerfulness of Jesus in His darkest moments comes to mind. I seek to repent of looking to my own needs before the needs of others.

5 Jesus is the gift of hope and a living reminder that we are loved by a good God even in the worst situations. Christabel Reena David

6 This Lent Season, I will want to think less of myself but do more for others like Jesus did, either by praying for or ministering to others.

13 I want to seek repentence of the pride that is latent in me, recently uncovered through a conversation with a friend. I want to learn how to see people better than me, instead of always assuming I have total clarity and that people must follow my way of doing things. Rev Shawn Koh Ang Mo Kio Chinese Methodist Church
