Practicing a Holy Lent

download“I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.”

Liturgy for Ash Wednesday, BCP p. 265

But how can you “observe a Holy Lent”? Start by spending time in quiet to listen to what your soul is telling you – about its places of sorrow and joy, about its fears and dreams, about its deepest yearnings. Spend a little time in quiet every day, and then explore ways to tend to your soul – to feed it, to comfort it, to give it space to dream. Join us in this holy and life-giving work.
