A LENTEN WAY OF LIFE? I try my best at doing Lent. I find it difficult though. For us in the southern hemisphere it is the begining of the year – school for the kids, planning for the year, setting of the course in terms of leadership, busy, busy, busy.
I would like to enter into the ancient spirit of lent, but often ind this impossible. I suspect a lot of faithful people feel this way. I would like to enter into the three great streams of the Christian way of life as shown by Jesus in his famous Sermon on the Mount – giving to the poor, fasting and praying.
Not quiet sure what to do about it. I battle on trying to fins some place and some space to seek his voice and I ask him to re-shape me the way he wants in all that happens these forty days. May he re-shape you too.
