Lent for Everyone

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.
