Lent starts on Wednesday. It’s 40 days (not including Sundays). It’s a season of preparation for Easter. A time of reflection. I’ve been wondering what I was going to do this year. Every year is a bit different. Many times I give something up as a prompt for prayer. Sometimes I add things, a service that I can give as an offering or a discipline to put into practice. This year I’m joining with a group going through a book called Inhaling Grace.
The challenge is to find a way to combat the hurry and busy of our lives. I’ve been restless lately and I know that when I slow down and make space for creativity (rather than just focusing on productivity) then my whole life becomes more reflective, more prayerful and less harried. In this way I experience more grace and less striving. So I made myself this creative challenge. If anyone wants to join me I’ve love to have you share in the journey with me.
I’ll be sharing here, which will also help me get back into blogging more than book reviews, though there might be a short disruption as I’m moving hosting companies. I’ll also be sharing on Facebook.
