Lent … Taking time for ourselves is important.  Taking time for others is important.

Lent is such an intentional and liminal time.  Time to be quiet yet listening deeper and sharing; away from the hectic pace we often keep yet in the community of/for those whom we engage in our lives; in prayer – private and public – and most of all “surrounded by the Great Cloud of Witnesses” because we are not in this alone.  Easter comes so quickly that if we are not careful we may miss the opportunity and message brought to us that Easter comes at the price of a faithful life offered upon the Cross by Christ Jesus our Lord.  It is the looking inward and outward as we live into this moment of time so that we may always be looking forward to the Hope and Glory through the death and  Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  A blessed Lent to all in the power of God’s grace.PAX,
