Lent for Everyone

    Newer Older

    It’s a season, an experience
    Not a concept
    Not a guilt wallow
    or a pre-party
    or a test of resolve for chocolate lovers.
    Lent is not a time to sharpen the weapons of blame.

    Doesn’t Lent have something
    to offer everyone?
    The most-devout Christian,
    people disillusioned and alienated by institutional wrong,
    travelers on other paths?

    Anytime we reckon with opportunities
    to understand
    with our whole heart
    who God created us to be,
    a life of loving God and neighbor,
    the reality that we cannot do it ourselves,
    We’re living out Lent.
    Lent can be for everyone.

      SOO cool! Great use of negative space. And hey, he looks less emaciated than mine. Did you ever go back to find out why I think he was portrayed that way in my photo?
      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Yep. We call them sermons.

      I hope that's okay. Most of the time, we come here to play and to take in beauty.

      Thank you for these words to take with me and contemplate during my morning walk with Mother Nature.
      Flickr doesn't always have to be just a place to see a pretty picture. I love photographs that makes me think and consider......dig deeper into myself for a better understanding of myself and the world.

      Thanks, Judy. That's actually one of the reasons I began using Flickr, a few years ago.
